This release presents all of Brownie's private solo piano recordings for the fisrt time ever on a sibgle collection ( including many unissued pieces), and all of his tapes practicing the trumpet unaccompanied at home. Among the many bonus tracks, we have included two previously unissued gems from Brownie's roots: a 1952 live performance of " I come from Jamaica" with a long trumpet solo ( his first live recording!), and a trumpet-alto-sax duet version of "Ornithology", played with his teacher Robert Lowery in 1949 or 1950. This rare acetate constitutes Clifford Brown's first recording ever!!!
