AllMusic Review by

On his 2008 debut, PLAY TIME, young Toronto-born/New York City-based saxophonist Mike Ruby mixes a relatively straight-ahead jazz sound with some avant-garde leanings, much like one of his key mentors, the trumpeter Dave Douglas. Standout tracks on this confident and inventive first outing include the hypnotic “Asymmetry” and an impressive take on “Someday My Prince Will Come.”
