Clifford Brown with strings - Mercury ZAF 1955 1st press VG+/VG
Successful albums featuring a jazz soloist and a symphony orchestra are rare. Often a little outdated. But this album is objectively an exception because it's here a real treat to hear trumpeter Clifford Brown and conductor Neil Hefti's harmonies cover an impeccable series of timeless standards, including "What's new". With Max Roach on drums. A huge pleasure here, the past has its virtues. Ultra ultra rare South African pressing with a fragile sleeve in strong VG condition, and a record that weighs an incredible amount. A little treasure.
