Born in Pittsburgh in 1926. Brown had the amazing good fortune to meet and play with Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Bud Powell on his very first day in New York. He was a regular with Dizzy from 1946 to 1951.
He had an incredibly busy career. When he was not performing, he was recording and when he wasn't playing, he was managing artists like the Modern Jazz Quartet and Quincy Jones. He discovered Diana Krall.
He literally played right up to the last day of his life, passing away in his sleep before a gig in Indianapolis.
