New Album Available Now


World class drummer Rayford Griffin’s tribute to his uncle, the late great trumpeter Clifford Brown. Blending the old with the new, this contemporary jazz offering re-imagines and updates the Clifford Brown classics and other titles from the hard bop era. By Chris DiGirolamo,

The latest tribute is a touching album by one of Brown’s nephews, Rayford Griffin, an accomplished drummer who works with Stanley Clarke and Dave Koz. Griffin’s album is unique in that it pays tribute through re-invention. – By Brian Zimmerman,

The fiery performances are climaxed by Brown’s composition “Joy Spring” and a dazzling series of solos that pay tribute to the maturity of Brown’s compositional integrity. Overall, Rayford Griffin does his uncle proud and after hearing Reflections of Brownie, you will smile that proud smile too. – By Paula Edelstein
