7 posts in this topic

This week's Night Lights program pays a centennial tribute to the man trombonist Trummy Young described as "a bubbling gladiator" and whom fellow trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie called "the messiah of our generation":

Portrait Of Little Jazz:  A Centennial Tribute To Roy Eldridge

The program focuses on recordings Eldridge made between the late 1930s and 1950s, including encounters with Chu Berry, Benny Carter and Coleman Hawkins, classic sides with Gene Krupa and Artie Shaw, and some of Eldridge's Verve leader dates. It is archived for online listening..

 

To delve deeper into a truly comprehensive overview of Eldridge's considerable musical legacy, check out this weekend's 48-hour WKCR Eldridge marathon broadcast.

That looks really good...but it's in RealAudio format. Ugh. Any chance of getting these posted in mp3, or are there licensing restrictions that force these to be streaming-only?

Alex, yes, unfortunately it's a matter of legal/copyright issues that requires us to stream the show in RealPlayer. This thread might be helpful for finding other ways of accessing the show.
