Roy Eldridge - Little Jazz Giant


447 pgs.
continuum, Publ.

Roy Eldridge's style is universally recognized as the all-important link between the playing of Louis Armstrong and the achievements of modernist Dizzy Gillespie. John Chilton's biography of the spectacular trumpeter presents a picture of a fiery yet sensitive individual, who unwillingly became entangled with gangsters in New York and Chicago, and had an 'uneven' working relationship with Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie.
