Product Description

Review

Ruby wanted to be remembered for his music. Performance was his passion. It is fitting that this final recording proves that he never reduced his standards and always gave his all to pleasing his audiences. He was a consummate artist who loved to play nice tunes and create a beauty for those who listened. -- Thomas P. Hustad, Professor of Marketing in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University

There's an old saying to the effect that "knowing what goes on in the kitchen can spoil your enjoyment of the meal." That nearly happens with Ruby Braff's "For the Last Time" CD. The extensive and well-written notes give considerable detail about the health-related struggles Ruby Braff had on his final tour, and especially in preparing for his final concert, recorded in Nairn Scotland, August 7, 2002. But the listener should not let these details detract him or her from enjoying this 2 CD set. For in spite of the difficulties, Ruby Braff and the music prevail triumphantly. The only hints that Ruby is running out of breath are the fact that he gives considerable solo space to members of his superb band, and that his sound is a little softer than usual. The latter may be due to the fact that he is slightly off-mike (which is quite evident on his spoken parts). But in terms of musical inventiveness Ruby plays extremely well and shows forth his life-time of musical experience. Ruby's characteristic bubbly sound is in full evidence, his melodic solos are a delight, and his use of the cornet's low register is as full and satisfying as ever. (Unlike the review's title, Ruby rarely finished a solo on a high note!).

The program consists of familiar standards but sounds quite fresh. From the opening "Sometimes I'm Happy" to the closing "Indiana", everything here is first rate. Highlights include the swinging "Dinah"; the jaunty and cheerful "Man I Love"; ballads like "Why Shouldn't I", and "I Want A Little Girl"; the mid-tempo "Yesterdays" (particularly the lengthy exchanges between Braff and Scott Hamilton); and Hamilton's feature, "The Man With a Horn". The band is superb both in solo and accompanying roles.

Sorry for pinching Mr Tapscott's phrase but he couldn't have put it better. This is indeed 'warm heated jazz'. It shows when musicians are enjoying the music and the company of their fellow musicians, and it shows in this recording. I love Ruby Braff so I am biased, I admit and I agree that the cover notes add a tinge of sadness to this session knowning that this is indeed 'the last time' but what a legacy this disc is. A great group but I like especially is that the tracks are long enough to allow them to expand their improvisation. If I could give it more stars I would.
