"Had Uncle Cliff lived how might he revisit his music today?" I've given that question a great deal of thought for quite a long time, and as fresh song arrangements began coming to me I soon concluded that I must make these recordings and share them with all My goal is to finish the recordings I've started of a new CD containing my arrangements for songs that were written and originally performed by my uncle, Clifford Brown."

“Rayford's debut effort entitled Rebirth of the Cool' is an outstanding release that features stellar luminaries from every corner of the jazzscape.”
