Ruby Braff & the George Barnes Quartet Play Rodgers & Hart

For the fourth of five recordings made by the classic Ruby Braff-George Barnes Quartet, ten songs by Rodgers and Hart are given melodic, swinging, creative treatment. Cornetist Braff and guitarist Barnes fed off of each other and worked very well together, while rhythm guitarist Wayne Wright and bassist Michael Moore always gave them impeccable support. Highlights of this enjoyable set include "Isn't It Romantic," "Blue Room," "You Took Advantage of Me" and "The Lady Is a Tramp."

I have this on both LP and CD and think it wonderful. These guys had been together for sometime and the playing is impeccable, almost too much so! Listen to Barnes's guitar solo on Isn't it Romantic! If you haven't heard this, grab it!

Melanchthon, j'ai du mal à commenter "Merci" sur chacun des tes posts que je télécharge. Mais en fait Sic Non Vobis" ou "Ploomysunday", selon, sont une référence absolue de bon goût et d'amour absolu des musiques qui nous font vivre. Possibilité de te/vous contacter en direct un jour? Pour te remercier plus et échanger?
