This album (although not too long - some 33 minutes) will satisfy a true swing lover because Roy Little Jazz Eldridge is at the top of his game... Young, strong and swinging like mad!

Hi-fidelity freaks, however, will probably not like this CD; it seems to have been remastered from acetates in various stages of deterioration and the last few tracks are really not in the best possible condition. But, if you have some experience in 20s and 30s music (and don't mind the audio technology of the era), you'll hear plenty of fire from this band; featuring also Zutty Singleton on drums, as well as Scoops Carey and Roy's brother Joe...

I've always carried a torch for Eldridge ever since I heard "After You've Gone" on Humphrey Lyttleton's "Best of Jazz" nearly 40 years ago. (How many jazz fans did Humph create over the years? Must run into millions...)

For a trumpeter of his stature, the link between Armstrong and Gillespie in the family tree, he is under-recorded; the prospect of a set of live sessions made when he was 26 and at the height of his powers was enticing.

However, I have to say that the sound quality, particularly of the last three tracks, is so bad that only the most dedicated Little Jazz fan will persevere. The playing is white-hot, especially on Exactly Like You and I Got Rhythm - if you can make it out, that is. The sleeve claims that the tracks have been cleaned up; if so, God knows what they must have sounded like before.

If you want to learn about Eldridge, get the Proper box set which is a joy and a bargain, though not currently available on Amazon. This one is only for the most dedicated fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Roy, which is really saying something 29 Mar 2009
By Jeff Lowenthal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have experienced Roy Eldridge only on studio recordings, this CD will be an eye opening experience for you. Previously available on several issues, it remains an exciting CD.

The sound is sometimes marginal, but these were sourced from 78 rpm acetate recordings, hardly a high fidelity medium. But the music! Here's Roy at the peak of his powers, "whistling" chops and all.

I had the pleasure to see Roy on a few of his nights when everything clicked, and he blew the roof off. He still had nights like that, all the way up to medical problems which forced him to stop playing. But on this CD you can hear him when /every/ night was like that.

Buy this, and prepare to be amazed!
