Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie trade solos on Limehouse Blues

Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie playing trumpetRoy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie both sound great on the tune Limehouse Blues. There are really a lot of good Jazz trumpet licks to take advantage of on this recording. I highly recommend getting the album Roy and Diz if you don’t own it already. It is packed full of great trumpet solos by Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie.

I wish I could share one of the tracks with you. Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie trade trumpet solos back and fourth throughout the entire tune. Both Roy and Diz start playing a bunch of high notes towards the end. They both get all the way up to a double high Bb (trumpet pitch). It’s a pretty fast tempo tune as well.
