Roy Eldridge - Echoes Of Harlem Roy Eldridge - Blue Moon Roy Eldridge - Stormy Weather Roy Eldridge - Sweethearts On Parade Yeah, it is a "different time, different experiences" thing, no doubt.
We live in a world that moves at a totally different tempo and in a totally different rhythm than we used to. Plus, and perhaps more importantly, the concept of not needing to rush to "get there" is rapidly vanishing from our collective behavioral repertoire - it's all about getting it all ASAP and such. The only problem with instant gratification, as my partner-in-crime Pete Gallio likes to say, is that it ain't fast enough. None of that for me, ok? I'm inclined to also think that the racial milieu of the times played a great part in all this as well.
Who was it said that the subtext of Steppin Fetchitt was that he never hurried about anything because there was nothing worth hurrying to? I don't recall, and that's something else, but you can bet your boots that cats of Roy's era had an awareness of "taking your time" that was strongly reinforced by the social barriers that they faced. Now that those barriers have eased, we might have thrown the already clean baby out with the dirty bathwater.
I don't know for sure. I finished listening to the set last night, and the only bummer was disc 7. Fine enough for what they are, but what they aren't is Roy Eldridge being Roy Eldridge, which the rest of the set is, and quite handsomely, thank you.
But that's 1 disc out of 7, leaving 6 full discs of totally exquisite music. More than good enough in my book. More than good enough. I'm glad that for once I ordered well, ok - urged loved ones to order for me as a Christmas gift early in anticipation instead of at the last possible second in panic. That seems more than fitting, all things above considered. I'm gonna take my time with this one. Posted 10 Jul Jimmy Reed was a man who was never in a hurry, but he always got to where he was going.
