Ruby Braff

One of the great swing/Dixieland cornetists, Ruby Braff went through long periods of his career unable to find work because his music was considered out-of-fashion, but his fortunes improved by the 1970s. A very expressive player who in later years liked to build his solos up to a low note, Braff's playing was instantly recognizable within seconds.

Braff mostly worked around Boston in the late '40s. He teamed up with Pee Wee Russell when the clarinetist was making a comeback (they recorded live for Savoy), and after moving to New York in 1953, he fit easily into a variety of Dixieland and mainstream settings. Braff recorded for Vanguard as a leader, and with Vic Dickenson, Buck Clayton, and Urbie Green. He was one of the stars of Buck Clayton's Columbia jam sessions, and in the mid-'50s worked with Benny Goodman. But, despite good reviews and occasional recordings, work was hard for Braff to come by at times. In the 1960s, he was able to get jobs by being with George Wein's Newport All-Stars and at jazz festivals, but it was not until the cornetist formed a quartet with guitarist George Barnes, in 1973, that he became more secure. Afterward, Braff was heard in many small-group settings, including duets with Dick Hyman and Ellis Larkins (he had first met up with the latter in the 1950s), quintets with Scott Hamilton, and matching wits with Howard Alden. He remained one of the greats of mainstream jazz until his death in 2003. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

At my age of 88, I remember the great music at Eddie Condon's in the village.

Sometimes you just never know where you'll find that DIAMOND in the RUFF.
This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry
despite good reviews and occasional recordings, work was hard for Braff to come by at times -- kinda breaks your heart -- I wish all those wonderful committed, real musicians out there the best

Yes, that sums it up . Easily recognizable . Check out the great LP of Buck Clayton meets Ruby Braff. Freddy
Great horn player. Kinda looks like Burgess Meredith
Ruby Braff influenced my taste in jazz trumpet, and played lyrically. I loved him then and want to hear more of his music on Pandora now.

A superb musician who gave immense pleasure to folks like me who heard him live in both Boston and Cape Cod

Ruby Braff was an exceptional musician. His playing was always smooth and melodic and like the critic said, "instantly recognizable . "
