Trumpeter/cornet player Ruby Braff began performing traditional jazz in the Boston area in the 1940s and over 50 years later shows no signs of slowing down. In 2001 he released the lovely I Hear Music and in 2002 followed it with the eclectic Variety Is the Spice of Braff. While the earlier effort featured a first-rate quintet, the latter is made up of larger groups in multiple settings. The overall approach, however, is similar: great musicians, classic tunes, and nicely prepared arrangements. Newsom also plays tenor sax on the album, while Braff alumni Bucky Pizzarelli handles most of the guitar work. What continues to make standards like "Crazy Rhythm" and "I Ain't Got Nobody" so lively is the amount of feeling Braff and his fellow players inject into the music.
