Ruby Braff - Hi-Fi Salute To Bunny (MCD-1016)

ADD TO WISHLIST

The Band Swings from First Note to Last

1957 marked the 15th anniversary of the death of the remarkable trumpeter and bandleader Bunny Berigan. To pay homage to Bunny, RCA Victor (Berigan's label for most of his recorded output) decided to bring Ruby Braff and seven mainstream veterans and newcomers to the studio and perform nine tunes associated with Berigan including I Can't Get Started, Marie and Downhearted Blues.. He is joined by Pee Wee Russell, Dick Hafer, Benny Morton, Nat Pierce, Steve Jordan, Walter Page (one of his last recordings) and Buzzy Drootin. The band swings from first note to last and stretches out soulfully on each tune (six of which are over six minutes). Did I Remember?, a bonus track originally issued only on a compilation, completes the sessions.

  Good Day
The rhythm section rocks! I'd sound good on a broken kazoo in front of these guys. Braff on a great day, the whole band is inspired.
 
  Great set
This set has early jazz numbers with modern sound. I kick myself for not getting the Bunny Berigan set when it was in print.
 
  The american bass players
I would like to know if Mosaic has the bass players records. Like Milt Hinton. If you have, please send me your catalogue with them all. Ana

Bobby Hackett (5 CDs)

"What was special about Bobby Hackett? In a world of hit-you-over-the-head, high-note, high-speed, supersonic, loud trumpeters, Bobby Hackett caressed your ears with understated astonishingly beautiful melodies." - Joe H. Klee, The Mississippi Rag

Woody Herman (7 CDs)

"Finally, the incredible First Herd collected in the ultimate set! The sensation of hearing every detail of "Out of this World" with Jackson's haunting bass lines, Harris & Phillips changing their solos in each take, "new" piano fills, the orchestra's collegial interpretation of Burn's genius (especially in the vocal numbers), Mosaic's remastering and Mr. Shoenberg's outstanding essay and analyses." - Customer review

Quincy Jones (5 CDs)

"Excellent music and great big band sound. Can't take this off the CD player. Thanks for sharing, as I never knew about Q's big band music before this set." - Customer review .
