Comments

Jul. 12, 2004: replaced with cleaner-sounding copy (same matrix information) - This copy has “FREE COPY” stamp on the Side-B's label. Luckily, this copy sounds far better than my previous copy (the old copy had three scratches on A-3 and A-4 that did sound but didn't skip). My previous copy, althouth had less scuffs than the newly-acquired one, sounded inferior (rather distorted and warped in loud passages) probably because it was pressed from nearly-worn-out stamper.

The cover is exceptionally in near-mint condition,

All tunes also available on EP-1-6100, EP-1-6101 and EP-1-6102.

Inside The Groove

A very famous and one of the greatest albums by Clifford Brown, accompanied with the strings section conducted by Neal Hefti.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

To tell the truth, I didn't come to like this album when I firstly listened to the album. A brilliant trumpet backed up with strings - I just thought it was no thrilling. Of course I knew this very famous album and I have listened to this so many times ever since.

But now I definitely can say I was definitely wrong. When I heard the CD copy of this album some time, suddenly I came to understand the music - I was astonished by Clifford Brown's great play. He mostly plays every tunes without improvisations - just basic melodies - but it's nothing but beautiful and awesome.

Although this album may not be a pure Jazz kind, I love Clifford Brown's brilliant play from the bottom of his heart. Strings section is arranged in a modest way, that doesn't interfere Brownie but does make him stand out.

One of his masterpieces.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10000 (or even more) out of 10
