Ruby Braff and his Buddies: Controlled Nonchalance at the Regattabar (Vol. 1)
Ruby Braff: Cornet Scott Hamilton: Tenor Sax Dave McKenna: Piano Gray Sargent: Guitar Marshall Wood: Bass Chuck Riggs: Drums
"The first thing that hits you about Ruby Braff is that sound: full, round, warm, vibrant, voluptuous and unmistakably his. He had it from the start, but it's grown wider and deeper with time and is, quite simply, one of the marvels of jazz today. There's only one Ruby Braff, and if you are like me, you can«t ever get enough of him. So add this little gem to your Braff shelf."
—Dan Morgenstern, Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University
