Clifford Brown III

Clifford Brown III has spent his life worshipping and appreciating the music gods. Carrying on the legacy of his grandfather, jazz trumpeter extraordinaire Clifford Brown Sr., this California bred musician has recognized, acknowledged and demonstrated his role in the global neo-jazz movement. Never bound by the east coast, west coast definitions of horn sounds that have limited previous generations, Clifford has found his unique niche in the movement, allowing him to transcend traditional jazz- bebop values and explore new universes of audio amalgamation.

He has been influenced by the generations of trumpet lions like Fats Navaro, Clifford Brown Sr., Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Roy Eldridge, Roy Hargrove and Ingrid Jensen. Clifford is poised to carry on the traditions of this lineage and the progression of musical identity by working closely with key talent, both foreign and domestic. Clifford is a Waves Labs certified mix engineer, professionally trained Propellerhead Reason Producer, DigiDesign ProTools | HD Certified Operator in both music and post production disciplines, an award winning musician, and host of the Jazz radio show "What I Like!".
