Description

As part of lead-up to the 35th Annual DuPont Clifford Brown Festival Theatre N will present Don Glanden’s film “Brownie Speaks: A Video Documentary of The Life, Music, and Legacy of Clifford Brown.” Stay for a panel discussion immediately following the film.

A native of Wilmington, Delaware, jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown made an outstanding and influential contribution to music. In an era when many musicians were emulating Charlie Parker’s drug abuse, Brown inspired others to achieve greatness while living a clean life. Ironically, he was killed in a car accident at the age of 25.

This feature-length documentary presents a richly detailed account of Brown’s life, and examines his historical importance in the context of three criteria–innovation, influence, and individuality.
