Swing Goes Dixie [Import]
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1956 album from the Jazz great. Contains the complete original album Swing Goes Dixie, presenting the great Roy Eldridge in an unusual context as the leader of a group playing mostly traditional and Dixieland Jazz. The group consists of a sextet, which also features trombonist Benny Morton, and two stars from the classic Count Basie rhythm section: Walter Page and Jo Jones. As a bonus we have added one complete session that was also recorded for Verve a few years earlier. The date showcases Eldridge in a very similar mood to that of our main album. We have also included the only two tracks featuring Eldridge from a Ralph Burns LP. Phoenix.
