The close of 1949 is a rich era for french jazz lovers. One after the other, Sidney Bechet, Buck Clayton, Louis Armstrong, Willie "The Lion" Smith and Coleman Hawkins tour de France. After years of privacy, ther's lots to be heard again. The one everybody is expecting is obviously Louis Armstrong, who had been in Europe the year before, and whose reputation reaches further than the circle of the happy few. At salle Pleyel, on November 3, the "King of Jazz" plays with the same sextet as the year before, with the exception of Cozy Cole on drums, who replaces Big Sid Catlett.
In a way, Brown was the Wynton Marsalis of his time; like Marsalis, Brown came on the jazz scene following a period of significant stylistic change. However, unlike Marsalis (who rejected the free jazz made famous by the generation just preceding his own), Brown chose to embrace the innovations of his immediate elders. In the process, Brown became one of the great post-Gillespie trumpeters, developing a voice that spoke the language of bebop with a distinct, personal inflection. In September 1953 – having just recorded his first dates as a leader for Blue Note – Brown went to Europe with Lionel Hampton.
