American musician, one of the great jazz trumpet players who was also gifted on piano, vibes, bass and the regular trumpet. His dad gave him his first trumpet in 1945. He studied harmony, theory and instrumentation, playing gigs from 1948 with top musicians such as Miles Davis and Fats Navarro. As a free-lance talent, he toured the R'n'B circuit on trumpet and piano from 1952-1953. This was a time in which he became known for his exceptional solos.

Brown was hospitalized, after a serious car accident, from June 1950 to May 1951.

He died in an unrelated car accident on 6/26/1956.
