Product Description

The title refers to the first Chicago jazz clarinetist Volly DeFaut, a former member of the famous New Orleans Rhythm Kings, who also recorded with Jelly Roll Morton, Muggsy Spanier and the Gene Goldkette Orchestra. Russian-born jazz pianist Art Hodes is the leader for these 1972 recordings which also feature Truck Parham, bass; Barrett Deems, drums; and on two songs Nappy Trottier, trumpet and George Brunis, trombone. Volly DeFaut passed away in 1973 making these his very last recordings.


Russian immigrant pianist Art Hodes was a tireless lifelong supporter of the traditional jazz he grew up hearing played by Jelly Roll Morton and James P. Johnson. His sparse but fervent approach to playing traditional jazz made Hodes effective in solo and group contexts. Up in Volly's Room is a session with fellow traditional jazz players Volly Defaut on clarinet and Truck Parham on bass. Though this 1972 session has almost half a century on its style, Hodes and company infuse it with the love of master craftsmen. Hodes worked in Chicago's south side clubs through much of his career and brings the lucidity of the blues to his simple declarative playing. The CD reissue includes previously unreleased material from the original session. --John Swenson

I heard him play once, when I believe he was 90 plus. I have this album on cassette (tape), so was glad to be able to purchase it on CD so I could put it on my iTunes. Wonderful! A classic!
