CD Reviews

Braff is magnificent
Benj Thomas | 12/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"in this setting. Closer to a big band than he has worked with more recently, and more exciting and flamboyant than in the more intimate context. I am inclined to put When You're Smiling in the same class of unsurpassed trumpet vehicles as Roy Eldridge's Rockin' Chair (with Krupa), Jonah Jones's Jonah Joins the Cab (with Calloway), Billy Butterfield's What's New (with Crosby) and even Concerto for Cootie (Williams with Duke). The rest of the disk is almost as wonderful."
