The Ruby Braff Quartet with Dick Hyman and Howard Alden: Watch What Happens
Musicians: Ruby Braff - cornet Dick Hyman - piano Howard Alden - guitar Jake Hanna - drums Daryl Sherman - vocal on track 9
"The Ruby Braff song book by now reaches out across dozens of CDs. We're lucky that he lived through a classic age and was able to bring forward its colors to us, but luckier still that he lives in an age where beautiful sounds are recorded with a fidelity and life that have never been known before. His embellishments are delicate and subtle and few jazz musicians have benifited more from modern studio techniques. His, more than that of any other soloist, is chamber jazz."
