Drawn Portraits by Tom Pokinko

Roy Eldridge (musician)

Acrylics, 2007

“You have to remember the trumpet is a mean instrument. Sometimes I feel like throwing it out the window, it’s such a beast. There are times when it treats you so sweet and nice that everything comes out just perfect.”

“There’s no use wondering how high Roy can go on his trumpet, because he can go higher than that.” – Louis Armstrong
