When it came to Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie had no greater love. "Little Jazz" was his early idol and role model, the next great brass stylist in jazz history after Louis Armstrong. At the inception of modern jazz, during the early days at Minton's and Monroe's in Harlem, Eldridge and Gillespie used to regularly engage in torrid cutting contests at competitive after hours jam sessions. Gillespie soon moved beyond Eldridge, and thanks to Charlie Parker, found his own voice on the trumpet. But the warm friendship and competitive edge between master and student continued on a number of Norman Granz inspired sessions. This throwdown at The Montreux Jazz Festival in 1975, featuring the innovative trumpet stylist Clark Terry and a swinging Oscar Peterson-Niels Pedersen-Louis Bellson rhythm section, has all the fire and elegance you could ask for.
In the spirit of Norman Granz's famous Jazz At The Philharmonic jams, the blues is a major component of the fun. On their concluding flagwaver "Indiana (Back Home Again In Indiana)" the contrasts between each brass master are telling: Terry, smooth and silky; Eldridge, raw and combative; Gillespie, serpentine and stinging. And when they hook up for a three-way conversation, as they do at the conclusion to the funky "Blues For Norman," look out.
