Roy Eldridge was born on the 30th January. 1911 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he spent his childhood and the major part of his youth. Eldridge could already play drums at the age of 6 and he learned trumpet at the age of 12.
His first engagement was with the Night-hawk Syncopators . He joined the ensemble of a carnival show shortly afterwards and travelled for a length of time throughout the Mid-West - as a drummer. His revolutionary success as a trumpeter was to take place quite some time later.
He formed his first dance orchestra after returning to Pittsburgh, had however very little success. He then changed over to trumpeter and part-time singer in one orchestra after another. His band-leaders of these early days were Horace Henderson. Zach White, Speed Webb and Johnny Neal.
His greatest idols were Rex Stewart and Red Nichols. Saxophone players, alongside trumpeters, played an important role in Eldridge s musical development. His brother Joe Eldridge, an alto saxophonist and Eldridge s partner of many years, also played a central role from the very beginning. Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter also inspired the jazz trumpeter.
Eldridge moved at first to Detroit then to New York in 1930 and was enthralled by the blossoming jazz scene in Harlem. He played there with such musicians as Cecil Scott, Charlie Johnson, Teddy Hill, Chu Berry and Elmar Snowden. who gave him the nickname Little Jazz .
Of great importance in this period was his meeting with Louis Armstrong, who was to become his greatest idol. Eldridge learned from him how to tell stories on the trumpet.
In 1933 Eldridge joined his brother in Pittsburgh and travelled from 1934 to 1935 with McKinney s Cotton Pickers . He eventually became the lead soloist with Chu Berry in Teddy Hill s band in New York. Eldridge played in Fletcher Henderson s highly successful formation between 1936 and 1937 - Coleman Hawkins had left shortly before - and was in the studio parallel to this with such successful artistes as Gene Krupa, Teddy Wilson and Billie Holiday.
The young star trumpeter first produced his own successful records such as Heckler s Hop . Wabash Stomp and Alter You ve Gone with his own band between 1936 and 1938. He eventually joined the popular big-band of Gene Krupa in 1941 and was as such one of the first black musicians with a regular position in a white ensemble. Although Krupa was constantly defending his new star. Eldridge sufferred time and time again through racism against black musicians; he was not allowed to stay at the same hotels as his white fellow-musicians and had to use the tradesman s entrance at gigs.
In spite of these negative experiences, which eventually caused a personal and musical crisis for the sensitive jazz musician (sometimes on stage he could not play a single note), he took on an engagement with the white band-leader Artie Shaw after Krupa s orchestra split up in 1944. Here he also had very many negative experiences.
Frustrated by this discrimination, and the take-over of bebop in the Swing era. Eldridge left for Paris in 1950 and stayed for one-and-a-half years - exhiliarated by the enthusiastic reception of the French music fans.
He thanked Norman Granz for his comeback in America. He toured throughout America and Europe during the Fifties with Granz project Jazz At The Philharmonic (JATPk alongside Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster and Art Tatum. His regular work between 1963 and 1965 with the singer Ella Fitzgerald, who was very envious of the audience s applause for Eldridge, was less successful. The trumpeter also did not get on very well with Count Basie, and left his band after only a few months.
Eldridge led smaller and larger combos right up until his death and was not disheartened by the new changing styles within jazz music. Outstanding jazz musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, who at first imitated Eldridge and later became one of the central musicians of the Bebop era, belonged to his greatest admirers. Eldridge is regarded as one of the most important musicans to have built a bridge between traditional jazz and the new modern styles. The great trumpeter with the rough voice died on the 26th February, 1989 in New York.
