5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Earthy Swing 31 Dec 2007
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first encountered Ruby Braff in the 50's on "BG in Hi-Fi". I had the 45s, the lp and now the CD. Ruby really lifts that band. Over the years, I have kept my ears open for something else that captured his unique drive, spirit and swing. "Best of Braff" is good, as are the duets with Ellis Larkins, but this CD with Dave Mckenna is the most swinging and musical. The presence of the drums, bass and guitar give it more umphf than the Larkins duets and seems to inspire Ruby. The piano recording is of marginal quality. Some of the cuts clearly have speed problems and Mckenna often sounds out of tune but I don't think it is the piano. Throughout, the bass and guitar get a fair shake, recording-wise, but Mckenna's left hand appears to be muted. Since Mckenna is known as a two-handed player this again suggests a recording problem. One of the bonus tracks with Roy Eldridge is marred by jumps, cut outs and speed ups. In spite of all these defects I play the CD frequently and recommend it.
