Ruby Braff: Cornet
Ellis Larkins: Piano

In this second volume, the familiar and the unfamiliar are again side by side, as Ruby Braff and Ellis Larkins again don their agent«s headphones, turn on their ancient radio and once more announce, "Calling Berlin," Irving Berlin, that is. Braff's virtuosic flights are never exhibitionistic, so few jazz musicians "sing" like him any more. And Larkins« understated commentary matches him imaginatively.

—Paraphrased from the album notes by Stanley Dance, author of The World of Swing.
