Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie trade solos on Limehouse Blues
Roy 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.
