Johnny Varro is the perfect pianist for this recording and shines on every selection he performs, and the trombone of Dan Barrett really gives some excellent moods! Every musician is in top form, and it is a joy to hear them perform such songs as "I Never Know," Cole Porter's "Little One," "Keepin' OUt of Mischief Now," "If I Could Be With You," "Hustlin' and Bustlin' for Baby," "When Your Lover Has Gone," "Royal Garden Blues," (great jazz sounds on this one!), "Twelfth Street Rag," and "When It's Sleepy Time Down South."
This 9 selection CD is a pleaser, and one every jazz listener will want to own and add to his collection of Ruby Braff CDs! This CD is full of excellent musical ideas, each realized in every way! Excellent!
The song, "Twelfth Street Rag," is one of the best renditions around! Enjoy!
