5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourites 20 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
Digby Fairweather called this group "a dazzling quartet, one of the great small groups in jazz." I wouldn't argue with that, in fact if I rated my own collection in order of gratification this CD would be in the top three. Sadly the group lasted only from 1973 to 1975; this recording being made live in 1974.
The group consisted of two gifted virtuosos and two modest rhythm
men, Michael Moore (bass) and Wayne Wright (guitar), who, during the whole of the 20 tracks never take a solo. They simply provide the finest of backgrounds for Ruby Braff (trumpet) and George Barnes (guitar) to create masterful patterns. Musically the empathy of these co-equal accompanists provides jazz in the mainstream form of the highest integrity. The more you hear this music the more you appreciate it.
Without doubt this is a very special recording made by the New School Audio Engineering Class and as stated the music is recorded very satisfactorily however there were no voice mics. so much of the verbal crossfire is lost. But there again one buys these CDs for the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Album! 1 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite albums of all time! The style is normally described as 'mainstream', the closest description I can come up with being sitting somewhere between swing and modern. If you want a mellow album, this should please..

5.0 out of 5 stars Two great musicians at the top of their form. 11 Jan 2001
By william j churchman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album by far that the Braff / Barnes quartet ever made,which is not to say that their other records are bad, they weren't, but this one is an absolute treasure, made better by including all the music recorded that night,unlike the original LP. Ruby Braff must be the best cornet player in jazz,and George Barnes amongst the best swing guitarists of his time. They play so wonderfully together that it is difficult to single out any tracks as being the best,but my favourite numbers are "There will never be another you","Solitude", "Rockin' in rhythm" ,"Struttin' with some barbecue", and "It don't mean a thing". But really the whole record is great, with the highest standards of musicianship from both the principals and Michael Moore and Wayne Wright on bass and rhythm guitar.Interestingly, the lack of a drummer doesn't stop the group swinging like crazy! The recording is excellent too,it does a great job in capturing the beautiful tone that both Ruby and George coax from their instruments. This is the most enjoyable jazz album I bought during 2000, and in my opinion the Braff/Barnes quartet was one of the outstanding groups of the seventies. In conclusion, buy it! Anyone with an appreciation for good music making cannot fail to be inspired and uplifted by this tasteful, humourous and sublime recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hot jazz instrumental recording 3 July 2003
By Daniel Malcolm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a very sharp recording of some great jazz standards by Ruby Braff and George Barnes. They are both not as well known (and underrated) to many jazz fans, but their style is distinct, crisp, and very fun. Its like sitting in a jam session with some great musicians. These guys know their music and instruments well, and it comes through on this CD. If you really enjoy jazz guitar (a la Barney Kessel) this is the album for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing Live at the New School 26 Mar 2006
By The Captain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a good CD especially if your a George Barnes fan. He demeonstrates some great interplay with Ruby Braff and Mr Braff's solos are lyrical and wonderful. This isn't my favorite of the George Barnes material that's out there however. If I had to choose one recording of George's that I came across on Amazon than that would have to be "Gems" with Joe Venuti. His playing sounds more lively than on this recording. That being said, the tune choices are great. I love thier versions of "There Will Never BE Another You', 'Sunny Side of Street', and 'Cheek to Cheek." If you play guitar like me then there are a lot of great licks to "cop" but if you only have enough bucks for one CD then get "Gems" instead.
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic jazz style from the 30's in a modern recording 23 Nov 2013
By Barry Goldstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
George Barnes just shines on this recording. Rudy Braff is also excellent.

The only problem is it's a live recording. The artists quietly talk among themselves during the first 10 pieces sometimes up to 2 minutes before the music starts. I used Audacity to edit out the pauses, and now have a CD that is a joy to listen to.

If you want to hear some great swinging jazz with a clever biting guitarist and a superb trumpeter in a classic quartet format (no drums just a 6 string guitar playing chords/rhythm in the background + an excellent bass player), this will delight you.
