Trombonist Mauro Ottolini's diverse and multifaceted world completely unravels in this album; a maze of exciting and compelling sounds where, in the lucid madness of his band Sousaphonix, complete fulfilment is found. "The Sky Above Braddock is a limbo, where one finds lost and forgotten souls. The music in this album was inspired by a short story I read about a borough of Pittsburgh, Braddock. It sweetly and subtly intoxicated my artistic vein… A thrilling provocation." (M. Ottolini)
This CD contains the best recordings from the early years of the fiery trumpeter Roy Eldridge. Eldridge, one of the great swing trumpeters and a powerful player into the 1970s, is heard with Teddy Hill's orchestra, backing singer Putney Dandridge, on four titles with Fletcher Henderson (including the hit "Christopher Columbus"), starring on a four-song session with Teddy Wilson, joining Billie Holiday on "Falling in Love Again," soloing on two numbers with Mildred Bailey (his "I'm Nobody's Baby" solo is years ahead of its time), and, best of all, leading a small group through six songs (plus an alternate) from his own explosive sessions of January 1937. This brilliant music is essential for all serious jazz collections.
