The Ralph Sutton Quartet Vol 2
This is the second in a series of 4 CDs on Storyville (vol. 1 being on STCD 8243). “With Sutton’s warmly swinging stride-based piano offering strong rhythmic support, together with Hinton and Alexander Ruby’s in ideal musical company. The format and approach is that of a relaxed jam session, with minimal head arrangements and a string of solos all round. But solos of quality, from seasoned artists. First-rate easy-listening small group jazz, with distinguished performances all-round.” – From the review of vol. 1 in Jazz Journal Int.
Ralph Sutton (piano); Ruby Braff (trumpet); Milt Hinton (bass), Mousie Alexander (drums).
Recorded 28, 1968
