Thursday Throwdown ~ “The Trumpet Battle” ~ Roy Eldridge & Charlie Shavers.

If this don’t leave you with a….Damn! You just don’t like Jazz or Real Music!

Charlie Shavers composed this piece. The band recorded this whole album entitled of the same name on September 13, 1952 at Carnegie Hall, New York City.

I only wish it was longer, like the almost 13 min. rendition of Benny Goodman’s Sing, Sing, Sing in 1938.

All the horns lit up on this one.

A classic Jazz Jam with an outstanding line up…
