Clifford Brown
Clifford Brown (October 30, 1930 June 26, 1956), aka "Brownie," was an influential and highly rated American jazz trumpeter. He died aged 25, leaving behind only four years' worth of recordings. Nonetheless, he had a considerable influence on later jazz trumpet players, including Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Booker Little, Freddie Hubbard, Valery Ponomarev, and Wynton Marsalis. Brown was born in Wilmington, Delaware. After briefly attending Delaware State University and Maryland State College, he was injured in a serious car accident in June 1950.
