5.0 out of 5 stars This Ruby is a real gem, March 14, 1999
This review is from: Ruby Braff and His New England Songhounds, Volume 2 (Audio CD)
Cited as "the greatst lyric cornetist working today," Ruby Braff teams up on this CD recorded on 4/30/91 with Scott Hamilton, Howard Alden, Dave McKenna, Frank Tate and Alan Dawson to produce an eminently listenable collection of twelve standards in a very smooth, mild jazz style. The selection of titles is well suited to the artist(s) and the renditions are superb. This CD stands near the top of my list of all time jazz favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great jazz combo music!, April 26, 2001
By 
Steve Emerine (Tucson, AZ United States) - See all my reviews
Ruby Braff ... Scott Hamilton ... Dave McKenna. They were among the best of the current cornet, tenor sax and piano players when they recorded this a decade ago, and they remain among the best today. That's all you really need to know about this fine Concord CD, except that the tunes are as excellent as the musicians. It should be a part of any jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars RUBY AT HIS BEST, June 12, 2004
By 
Of all of Ruby's LPs and CDs this and Volume Two show Ruby at his most relaxed and lyrical, with mature, full tone and amazing inventiveness (his unstoppable rolling notes often sound like a saxophone). That he is sided by Scott Hamilton on tenor, Howard Alden on guitar and Dave MeKenna on piano only adds to the joy. Ruby collectors should not miss this and Vol. Two.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like "Love and Marriage ... ", April 26, 2001
By 
Steve Emerine (Tucson, AZ United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ruby Braff and His New England Songhounds, Volume 2 (Audio CD)
The old song, "Love and Marriage," said it best: "You can't have one without the other." And you can't have this CD without owning Volume 1 of Ruby Braff's recordings with the New England Songhounds. If anything, Volume 2 is even better because it contains some songs left off the cassette version. Scott Hamilton and Dave McKenna join Braff in being as good or better than on the first volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Piece of Art, August 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
One of those CD's where you find yourself humming the music for days after. Scott Hamilton and Dave Mc Kenna are one of a kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Braff, February 28, 2013

This review is from: Ruby Braff and His New England Songhounds, Volume 2 (Audio CD)
This is Ruby Braff and his New England cohorts, happily featuring Scott Hamlton very heavily, at their lyrical best.
Having already got volume 1, I was delighted that volume 2 is just as good. Swinging tuneful jazz at its best. It appears to be out of print however the used copy from Silver Discs, via Amazon, arrived in good time from the U.S. and was in new condition. I shall certianly use them again.
