Johnny Hodges - The Best Of The Verve Years

Johnny Hodges - The Best Of The Verve Years


The defining saxophonist of his generation, Johnny Hodges rose to prominence during the big-band era with what Duke Ellington described as ‘a tone so beautiful it sometimes bought tears to the eyes’. Perhaps an understated member of Ellington’s big band initially, Hodges’ deft tone and seductive style soon affirmed him as one of The Duke’s most valuable soloists and a vital player in his orchestra. A subdued yet commanding presence in the big band format, Hodges’ assured mastery of the alto-sax and his subtle nuance has left him regarded as one of the very best musiciansto have worked alongside Ellington.
This 4 CD Box Set serves to highlight some of Johnny Hodges’ finest ever albums as leader or co-leader. Faithfully remastered, this collection serves as both an enthralling introduction to an all-time great jazz musician and as an invigorating re-affirmation of Hodges’ talents for those already familiar with his work.
