This is the legend Roy Eldridge, commonly known as “Little Jazz”. Roy was one of the most talented and innovative trumpet player of all times. His music makes me feel nostalgic about places i´ve never been to, people i´ve never met and an era i never knew.
All my life I’ve loved to battle. And if they didn’t like the look of me and wouldn’t invite me up on the bandstand I’d get my trumpet out by the side of the stand and blow at them from there.”- Roy Eldridge
