O’s Notes: The beauty of a cornet played well is warm and soothing. It has the brilliance of a trumpet with all the edges rounded off. The Wurlitzer Theater Organ complete with full-length pipes has power and resonance that command attention. It’s an instrument that easily can entertain alone, in churches, ballparks and theaters. Put Ruby Braff and Dick Hyman in command of each, arm them with some of America’s favorite tunes and you’ll get the magic of this session, originally recorded in 1982. Included for the first time are seven previously unissued tracks. Together the 17 songs make a good CD.
