Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry EdisonTour De Force – The Trumpets Of Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry Edison ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good ... $8.99
A triple-trumpet session with a really wonderful sound – the kind of all-star date that only a label like Verve could have done so well! As you'll guess from the title, the record's a showcase for the three trumpeters in the lead – and the tracks are long, with plenty of space for each player to state their case in a very distinct solo voice. Rhythm is by a familiar quartet that features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – and the use of guitar in a set like this creates an especially ringing tone at the bottom, one that often seems echoed by the brighter notes of the trumpet over the top. The album's got a great extended "Ballad Medley", plus long takes on "Tour De Force" and "Steeplechase". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting.)

Roy Eldridge & Dizzy GillespieTrumpet Kings ... LP
Verve, 1954. Very Good ... $23.99
Diz and Roy come together in a nice blend of two traditions – blowing in a relaxed mode that's less of the "battle" you might expect from the title – and more of a friendly exchange of solos, recorded in the open and laidback style of Verve at the time. The group features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums – and Dizzy himself even vocalizes a bit on the set! Tracks are mostly longish, with plenty of solo space, and the the album features 5 tracks that include "Blue Moon", "Limehouse Blues", "Trumpet Blues", "Algo Bueno", and "Pretty Eyed Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label Clef pressing, with trupeter logo and deep groove. NOTE: Cover has waviness, staining, peeling and tape along the bottom half due to moisture.)

Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (2LP) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
2 nice live sets – put together by Norm Granz, as a tour of the JATP all stars in Europe. Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has a cut corner and some minor splitting.)
