The complete original album Swing Goes Dixie (Verve MGV1010), 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.

Includes an 8-page booklet
