Benny Golson: “I remember Clifford”

This is Benny Golson on tenor saxophone, Curtis Fuller on slide trombone, Mulgrew Miller on piano, Buster Willians on bass and Carl Allen on drums at a concert in Salzau, Germany in 2000.

They are performing "I Remember Clifford", a Golson masterpiece written in the memory of famed trumpeter Clifford Brown who perished in a car accident in 1956. You can see his appearance on television here just a few months before he died.
