In the spring of 1953 the late, lamented trumpet genius was a featured soloist in Tadd Dameron's band. These recordings set the jazz world on its ear and Brownie's fame spread beyond musicians' circles. In the fall he toured in France and Sweden with Lionel Hampton's orchestra, capturing the jazz audience on the Continent and leaving a legacy of exceptional recordings, including the ones heard here with Art Farmer and the Swedish All-Stars.
