Roy Eldridge • The Nifty Cat

 



Review
by Scott Yanow
One of only two Eldridge-led studio sessions from the 1961-1974 period, this CD reissue of a set originally recorded for Master Jazz matches the great swing trumpeter with Budd Johnson (who doubles on tenor and soprano), trombonist Benny Morton, pianist Nat Pierce, bassist Tommy Bryant, and drummer Oliver Jackson. All six of the jump tunes are by Eldridge with "5400 North" and "Ball of Fire" being the best-known. For this album, the veteran trumpeter had a very rare opportunity to call his own shots on a recording date, and the generally inspired playing makes this CD a fine example of small-group swing from the early '70s.

Una de las dos únicas sesiones de estudio dirigidas por Eldridge del período 1961-1974, esta reedición en CD de un conjunto originalmente grabado para Master Jazz reúne al gran trompetista de swing con Budd Johnson (que dobla en tenor y soprano), el trombonista Benny Morton, el pianista Nat Pierce, el bajista Tommy Bryant y el baterista Oliver Jackson. Los seis temas de los saltos son de Eldridge, siendo "5400 North" y "Ball of Fire" los más conocidos. Para este álbum, el veterano trompetista tuvo la rara oportunidad de tomar sus propias decisiones en una fecha de grabación, y la interpretación, generalmente inspirada, hace de este CD un buen ejemplo de swing en grupo pequeño de principios de los 70.
