The 1970s were a time of renaissance for Roy Eldridge, with jazz festivals and small group recording sessions plentiful. The music produced was in itself a remarkable synthesis of Eldridge's roots and the progressive schools of bop and cool jazz. This crossbreed, modern music has as much to do with the other two musicians headlining this release, Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson.
Eldridge's influence on the younger generation is evident on all the solos, especially in the revved trumpeting of Gillespie. Listening to the cool playing on "Take the A Train" and "I Cried For You," one is struck by Eldridge's legacy of speed and high notes. Gillespie and Peterson are just as influential. "Quasi-Boogaloo," a collaborative piece by all three, is chock full of bop-tinged playing and cool chord structures. Roy Eldridge shows himself to be a consummate performer; his adaptations and borrowings make this set a vibrant musical exchange of ideas.
