They were on their way to meet Roach for a gig in Chicago when Powell’s car

Clifford Brown, pianist Richie Powell and wife, were killed in a car accident during the early morning hours of June 26, 1956. They were on their way to meet Roach for a gig in Chicago when Powell’s car, driven by his wife, skidded off the wet Pennsylvania Turnpike ! Clifford Brown was noted for lyricism, clarity of sound, and grace of technique. He was a principal figure in the hard-bop idiom… I still keep this record in my DJ bag, and sometimes play his unique trumpet style over beats.

“Clifford was a profound influence on my personal life. He showed me that it was possible to live a good, clean life and still be a good jazz musician.” (Sonny Rollins)
