As one of the finest decorators of melody, Braff is infallible at selecting good tunes. In these 1955 duets he was beginning a lifetime of improving the world's best standard songs. He was 19 when these recordings were made and, amazingly, he has hardly needed to vary his style at all in the ensuing half century. The brilliant improvisations here are quite interchangeable with the ones that he still pours out with grace and élan today. Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines had recorded the first trumpet/piano duets three decades earlier, but Braff and Larkins had a gentler concept, and this is some of the most delicate jazz ever recorded. It may partly be because Braff plays cornet, a softer instrument than the trumpet. His tone is beautiful throughout and loses nothing when he plays with a mute as he does on "Girl friend". The way he injects blues into his lyricism is classic jazz indeed. Larkins is one of the best of accompanists and his anticipation of Braff's needs is miraculous, making this at one and the same time an almost seamless and an inspired jazz partnership. --Steve Voce
