Tasteful, Lyrical and Timeless Jazz Duets
William Faust | Columbus, Ohio | 07/13/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This recording has become a classic in my book, not because it's innovative or breaking new ground in any way but simply because it's so elegant and pure. Braff is one of the best mainstream players still around today who, while not a big force in the swing band era, was obviously influenced by it or at least by Bobby Hackett if no one else. I actually don't know much about Larkins but on this CD they complement each other very well and lay down some beautiful interpretations of these standards. Braff prefers the darker sound of the cornet (vs. trumpet) and Larkin's uncomplicated style provides a perfect river for Braff to navigate with interesting solos but ones that (fortunately) never stray too far from the original melody. Very nice stuff, easy to listen to but not "easy listening". If you like Bobby Hackett or Warren Vache you'll enjoy this recording."
