Wilmington’s own Clifford Brown was a trumpeter, whose life tragically ended early one summer morning in 1956. The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is Wilmington’s tribute to a great man and his legacy. This year marks the 36th Annual Clifford Brown Jazz Festival and the 67th anniversary of his passing.
