Blues in Bb Eldridge 1980
A few days ago I posted Jump Street Blues featuring Roy Eldridge.
davidhazard71 posted a comment and explained to me that Roy had retired in 1979 and very little material after that would be available.
I started digging in my collection and I found another one. This is for you David!
Recorded in Toronto, my notes said it was 1980, this is part of an Oscar Peterson show where a recreation of Jazz at the Philharmonic was shown. Norman Granz introduces Louis Bellson drums, Ray Brown bass, Herb Ellis guitar, Oscar Peterson piano with in the front line Zoot Sims and Eddy Lockjaw Davis saxes and Clark Terry and finally Roy Eldridge on trumpets.They just swing your socks off, in a blues in Bb, the most comfortable key for the tenors and the trumpets which are tuned in that key.
