AllMusic Review by

Cornetist Ruby Braff teams up with the great stride pianist Ralph Sutton, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Mousey Alexander for these informal live sessions recorded in 1968. The quartet plays predictably excellent and swinging versions of seven familiar standards with the highpoints including "Someday Sweetheart" "I Found a New Baby," "I'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby" and "St. Louis Blues." This collector's LP, recorded at a time when this style of music was being neglected, will be difficult to find but is worth the search.
