Overview

This compilation combines tracks from three separate early-'50s recording sessions. Braff, heard on trumpet rather than cornet, is in great form, and is joined by Vic Dickenson, Nat Pierce, and now-obscure tenor saxophonist Samuel Margolis on a swinging "Sweet Sue." Two tracks come from a Dickenson-led date; the best is a very relaxed take on "I Cover the Waterfront." Only one selection comes from a meeting of Braff and fellow trumpeter Buck Clayton, but it's a gem -- an extended look at "I Can't Get Started." As with many Vanguard reissues of recent vintage, the only complaint is that each of the record dates merited a separate re-release instead of this enjoyable but piecemeal anthology CD.
