Jazz 100 - Ruby Braff 04 Jul 2017
“I’m Old Fashioned” could have been cornetist Ruby Braff’s theme song. While trumpeters followed the trend of aiming high and fast, Braff concentrated on concision, sincerity, lyricism and a belief that there was just as much emotion in his instrument’s lower register. He adored melody and his short-lived quartet with guitarist George Barnes defined small group mainstream jazz.
