76 sides recorded between 1935 & 1952
Featuring Teddy Wilson, Coleman Hawkins, Artie Shaw, Barney Kessel, Zoot Sims, Dick Hyman, Buddy Tate, Oscar Peterson...and many more!
Continuing AVID Entertainment's Gold Remasters 3 x CD Box Set series we present one of the unsung jazz trumpet hero's of the classic jazz era…Roy Eldridge, "The Little Jazz Giant".
Our 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 playing life.
There followed a period of big band success before Roy joined Artie Shaw in 1944 as a featured sideman on an astronomical $500 a week!
Following appearances in Europe including Paris and Stockholm, two great jazz cities, Roy returned to New York to fulfil an ambition to record with strings before finishing off our musical journey with four tracks recorded with Oscar Peterson in 1952.
