New York and Home
Once Clifford Brown had begun his career in music recording, there would never be a time in his life when musicians did not press to perform with him. The plane had hardly touched the tarmac upon his return from Europe when the phone started ringing. This was mainly a response to the Blue Note recording he had done before the Hampton tour. After freelancing around New York for a couple of weeks and checking out the scene, Brown heard that Art Blakey had called with news of a new group that he was forming. Together with the Blue Note Records producers, Blakey had convinced Lou Donaldson to join his band. Brown immediately accepted Blakey's offer to join him because he knew that the music would be to his liking and he had had a good experience with the Blue Note people. Blakey had also signed on veteran bassist Curly Russell and a budding piano talent who had scored well the year before with Stan Getz. His name was Horace Silver.
