Virtuoso, composer, innovator, and inspiration to generations of trumpet players to come, Clifford Brown holds a special place in jazz history. Known for his beautifully melodic lines, crisp articulation and warm sound, Clifford achieved an incredible amount in a very short space of time. One of the few jazz musicians of the time who stayed away from drugs and alcohol, Brown was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 25.

His legacy lives on through compositions such as 'Joy Spring' and 'Daahoud,' as well as seminal recordings with drummers Max Roach and Art Blakey. Paying tribute to him tonight are the Hip-Town Bangers, a band formed by top Wellington musicians through a common love of hard bop jazz.

At Hawke's Bay Jazz Club the Hip-Town Bangers are:
- Ben Hunt (trumpet),
- Chris Buckland (tenor saxophone),
- Anita Schwabe (piano),
- Scott Maynard (bass),
- Shaun Anderson (drums).

Cash bar and meals available. Bring your friends for a stunning night of jazz. All welcome.
