Rayford Griffin “It was the drum solos of Art Blakey and Max Roach on albums by his late, lamented uncle, trumpeter Clifford Brown, that lured Rayford to the drums.” For decades, Rayford Griffin has been internationally respected as among the most inventive, volcanic and versatile drummers in music, having amassed stellar credits with virtuosos ranging from Jean-Luc Ponty and The Stanley Clarke Band to Dave Koz, Anita Baker, even Michael Jackson. This amazing percussionist, composer and producer has roots that extend back to the most revolutionary era of jazz – be bop – thanks to his uncle: the great trumpeter/composer Clifford Brown. Indeed, it was being made pridefully aware of his uncle’s music very early in life by his aunt Larue Brown Watson (Clifford’s widow) and studying it that deeply influenced Rayford to become the far reaching musician that he is today. In that spirit, Rayford is in the process of completing Reflections of Brownie – his second album as a leader and his first since 2003’s Rebirth of the Cool – in a loving and fittingly innovative fashion.
