Description:
"There is a completely different aspect to Ruby Braff«s art. From the sunlit uplands of the middle and upper register, he will dip down into a deep hollow of sound, sometimes just for a note, sometimes for a long, long passage. This is an area no one else has explored on cornet or trumpet. Indeed it is a sound unique in music, unique to Ruby Braff - warm, gentle, intimate, reflective, sometimes melancholy, sometimes delightfully sensuous. . . . The music is absolutely fresh, completely unique and couldn«t possibly have been played by anyone else in the world but Ruby Braff. You only need to hear a bar or two to know that. That«s the way jazz should be.? Ò from the album notes by Martin Gayford, jazz critic of the Daily Telegraph, London, who writes regularly for many publications on both jazz and the visual arts.
Here is what the critics have to say:
Selected by John Norris as a Writer«s Choice for 1998 in the January/February 1999 issue of Coda; Selected by Gary Giddins in his Baker«s Dozen for 1998 in the January 6-12, 1999 Village Voice, third highest vote total of combined critics of Jazz Journal International in the February, 1999 issue and as a choice by critics David Badham, Eddie Blackwell, Stanley Dance, Peter Vacher and Steve Voce. Selected as one of Meilleurs Disques Chroniques en 1999 by Le Hot Club de France Federation
