You can add Jon Eardley to that voluminous list of talented jazz musicians who came to prominence in the 50s but could never make it in the States, so they eventually took off for Europe. Fortunately the trumpeter was preserved in some great company before he left. This OJC reissue features two Prestige/New Jazz 10"s combined on to one LP length CD. The first, "Jon Eardley/In Hollywood" is a nice Christmas day 1954 quartet session with pianist Pete Jolly, bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Larry Bunker. Next stop is Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack studio on March 14, 1955 for the star of the show, "Hey There, Jon Eardley!" Here we get to hear the trumpeter paired off with tenor saxophonist J.R. Monterose, another brilliant player who never really got his due (see my reviews of these fabulous albums, J.R. Monterose and Message). An excellent rhythm trio of George Syran on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums provides a solid foundation, as they do on Seven and Phil Woods' Pot Pie (see my review of the latter). This is forward-thinking modern jazz performed excellently, making "From Hollywood to New York" a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
