Description

Little Jazz Giant on CD

3-CD box set presents the work of jazz trumpet hero Roy Eldridge. The musical journey begins in 1935 with The Delta Four before Roy was invited to front his own swing combo in 1937, a period he was to look back on as the happiest of his career. There followed a period of big band success before Roy joined Artie Shaw in 1944 as a featured sideman and was paid an astronomical $500 a week. Following appearances in Europe including Paris and Stockholm, two great jazz cities, Roy returned to New York to fulfill an ambition to record with strings before finishing off this musical journey with four tracks recorded with Oscar Peterson in 1952.
