Roy Eldridge takes a very energetic live trumpet solo

Roy EldridgeI wish you could take listen to a very energetic trumpet solo by Roy Eldridge (also known as “Little Jazz”) that was recorded live on stage at Carnegie Hall. Roy Eldridge took the last solo on a tune called The Opener which Charlie Parker started with taking the first improvised solo. If you’re interested in the CD, it is called Jazz at the Philharmonic, 1949.

I love this Jazz trumpet solo because Roy Eldridge plays it with so much energy. All the other rides were good to, but Roy Eldridge’s solo just had so much more energy and the trumpet solo didn’t have too many notes either. Just a whole lot of energy. Roy Eldridge is known for his edgy trumpet playing, which I like.
