I've been on the fence about that set-might have to pull the trigger.

What Mosaic am I NOT enjoying? "Ruby Braff -- Hi-fi Salute to Bunny"

This is what I posted on Mosaic's site:

2note.gif

  Disappointing then, more disappointing now

Bought this on RCA when it first came out in 1957 and felt that it was a surprisingly lifeless date, given the eminence of the young Braff and the quality, on paper at least, of the rest of the band [Peewee Russell, Benny Morton, Dick Hafer, Nat Pierce, Steve Jordan, Walter Page, Buzzy Drootin]. I attributed this lifelessness in part to the rather claustrophobic sound -- there seemed to have been virtually no resonance to the studio where it was recorded, and enough resonance is crucial to capturing Braff's fat sound -- and bought the Mosaic assuming/hoping that careful remastering would bring improvement. If anything, sound quality is worse than on my old LP; still just as airless -- was the album remastered at all? -- and Nat Pierce's piano even breaks up on several tracks. Wish I could return this one, don't think I'll ever listen to again.

[Further thoughts]

Whoever wrote the charts for this date (Pierce?)  should be horsewhipped. Voicing Peewee in unison with three other horns is asking for big trouble. Instead, just leave him free to swirl about the rest of the ensemble as he sees fit; his instincts in such a setup are almost always right on the money. In any case, Peewee sounds very dispirited here. And to think that just a year before Ruby made that great album "Braff!" (Epic). FWIW, I think Fred Reynolds was the producer here. Horsewhip him, too, damn it.

Looks like there's a camp or something for that now. Guess they didn't have it then?

Anyone know why the audio clips on the website don't work? Whenever I click on one, it tries to download an "asx" file.
