Abstract

With his feet firmly planted in the Dixieland tradition, Ruby Braff was soon forgotten in the quickly evolving musical climate surrounding jazz in the mid 20th century. A virtuosic trumpeter, Braff was a staple on the New York jazz scene in its hey-day, garnering praise from jazz royalty such as Jack Teagarden and John Coltrane. By 1980 Ruby Braff was all but forgotten.
