5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourites, 20 Mar 2002
By 
Mike Powell (Tregaron, Ceredigion United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Live at the New School-Complete (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

This review is from: Live at the New School-Complete (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..
