Documenting the rise of legendary trumpeter Clifford Brown, the appropriately-titled New Star On The Horizon comprises material Brown recorded in New York City in August,1953 and released on 10-inch vinyl. This was one of Brown's first sessions as bandleader, leading a sextet including drummer Art Blakely. In 1954 Brown won the DownBeat critics' poll as New Star of the Year, however he never had the chance to fulfill his star potential. He died in 1956 at the age of 25 in a car accident en route to a gig in Chicago. The material on this album was repackaged following Brown's death and released as Memorial Album.

"Other players came to replace Clifford, but they couldn't do it. He had it all. He was just like a shooting star, he's there, and he's gone." --Sonny Rollins

"Fortunately for jazz fans, Brown's work persists in the form of his recordings, which can be safely recommended as outstanding examples of the very best of jazz." --JazzTrumpetSolos.com

"The early 1950s were an interesting, if largely unsatisfactory, time for jazz. There had been a revolution in the 1940s with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie juggling all the ingredients of jazz into a new order. By the early 1950s there was a new generation of musicians, the disciples of Parker and Gillespie, who were trying to find their own voices. A few years later hard bop would bring a new, tougher aesthetic, but in the early 1950s the move was towards something more restrained, something cooler. Miles Davis was the iconic figure pushing towards the new style, but Clifford Brown was another imaginative force and it is interesting to compare him with Davis. This album was Brown’s first release as solo leader. The overall sound is remeniscent of Davis’s Birth of the Cool sessions: A certain richness in the horn sound, in the layering of harmonies." --Rateyourmusic.com
