Two great musicians at the top of their form.

"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."
A hot jazz instrumental recording

"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."
