Reviews

Roy Eldridge was regarded as one of the greatest trumpet players in jazz history. His range and rhythmic skill made him one of the finest trumpeters of the swing era of the 1930's.

Format: DVD
What can I say about this DVD that I haven't already said about the rest of this series. Well if nothing else it is one of the very very best. To get Roy Eldridge (AKA 'Little Jazz') on film in colour with a trio is just amazing.

Roy Eldridge was one of the most exciting Trumpeters in Jazz history sitting somewhere in the gap between Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie. A fiery competitive player who always went for the high notes and tried to play anybody else off the stage. Put him with the trio here, which consists of Bobby Durham, Neils Henning Orsted Pederson and Oscar Peterson and you immediately know this is going to be great.

From the opening notes of 'Between the Devil and the deep Blue Sea' you'll be in love with this. Following this is 'Blues' in which Eldridge goes for it big time on his solo. Of course Peterson in the 70's was in prime form and was never one to shy away from a challenge and he replies with an equally exciting solo.

Other highlights are Eldridges wonderful reading of 'I Surrender Dear' and Petersons magnificent solo on 'Perdido'.

The other tunes played are:
Dale's Wail
Bye Bye Blackbird

Careful watching and listening will show you that these guys actually weren't that well rehearsed as there are few little mistakes here and there, but it doesn't matter a jot, when these guys are swinging this is simply one of the best music DVD's I've ever bought.

Eldridge does it again!

Admittedly, he was no longer in full power in '77, but 80% of Roy is still more than most players could muster... And he plays remarkably even if you don't know who he is or what he has done before.

He plays with verve and zest many a younger player might envy and, with Oscar Peterson(p), Niels Pedersen (European answer to Ray Brown-b) and Bobby Durham (dm), this DVD really contains some hot music. As the concert reaches its end the things really start cooking and the bis (Bye Bye Blackbird) reaffirms the greatness of the ensemble on the stage and the magnificence of the Little Jazz, Roy Eldridge, one of my favorite musicians.
