Editorial Reviews

These 1955 Johnny Hodges sessions feature two remarkable units including mostly musicians who had been long associated with Duke Ellington. Among them were two excellent trumpet players with clear ideas about Hodges: Clark Terry and Harold "Shorty" Baker. In Terry's laconic opinion, Johnny had "always been true to himself." In the meantime, Baker once said that "Nobody knows what Johnny Hodges feels inside as he walks out to the mike. He may look as though he's on his last walk to the gallows, but he appreciates the applause and he thanks the audience with a million dollars' worth of melody!" Their insights testify to the respect and regard Johnny Hodges (1907-1970) enjoyed among musicians. That his popularity with the public, in a five decade of professional activity, should remain undiminished, similarly testifies to the fact that artistic ability and integrity do not always go unnoticed and unrewarded.

Format: Audio CD
Hodges was a veteran session leader by the time the two albums comprising this set were recorded. I love this set because of how well both albums fit together as a compilation. There are no glaring jolts as Perdido ends and Creamy segues into the mix. It also showcases his talents in two larger ensembles, which seems to be his comfort zone.

I almost subtracted a star because For This Is My Night To Love was not included. The music is so good, as is the recording quality, that I did not want to diminish the rating. For all I know that song was left off because it was not as well preserved and would have marred the listening experience.

Since there are sound tracks on this page use those to guide you with respect to not only the music, but the sound quality. Each snippet will tell you more about each track that I possibly can describe in words.

Tracks 1 through 5 are from the album titled Perdido, which was recorded in New York on January 7, 1955. Hodges is backed by Harold 'Shorty' Baker on trumpet, Lawrence Brown on trombone, Artur Clarke on tenor sax, and a rhythm section comprised of Leroy Lovett on piano, Johnny Williams on bass and Louis Bellson on drums.

The remaining tracks are from Creamy, which was recorded in New York on September 8, 1955. Hodges is backed by Clark Terry on trumpet, Harry Carney on baritone saxophone and a rhythm section comprised of Billy Strayhorn on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass and Sonny Greer on drums. Note that on this page (at the time of this review) track 10, Ballad Medley, only shows three songs. In fact there are seven, which are: Whispering, Tenderly, Don't Take Your Love From Me, But Not For Me, Prelude To A Kiss, Polka Dots And Moonbeams and Passion Flower.

A good reissue with good sound. Johnny was a favorite and did no wrong in my eyes. 1 song was left off but you are getting almost eighty minutes of beautiful music.
