"I Remember Clifford" is an instrumental jazz threnody written by jazz tenor saxophonist Benny Golson in memory of Clifford Brown, the influential and highly regarded jazz trumpeter who died in an auto accident at the age of 25. Brown and Golson had done a stint in Lionel Hampton's band together. The original recording was by Donald Byrd in January 1957.[1]

Arturo Sandoval recorded the album I Remember Clifford as a tribute to Brown, who was a great influence on Sandoval; it features Golson's tune.
