Orbert Davis: Symphony Centre, Buntrock Hall, Chicago. 15th May, 2013

This is Clifford Brown with Strings (EmArcy, 1955). I was a teenager when I first heard this incredible album—the depth is in its subtleties—and Clifford is so perfect with the string writing of Neal Hefti. It's a true blending of classical and jazz.

The first thing I knew—this is funny—I recognized the name Neal Hefti from the Batman theme!

For me as a trumpet player I study Clifford Brown; as an arranger I study Neal Hefti, so this brings both those worlds together and it did so when I was back in high school when I discovered this recording.

This is my One LP!
