Johnny Hodges & Wild Bill Davis • Blue Rabbit



One of altoist Johnny Hodges' many solo records in the 60's away from Duke Ellington's Orchestra, this out-of-print LP features him in two separate but similar settings. The great saxophonist is joined by either Wild Bill Davis or (on four of the nine songs) the obscure organist Ray Jackson, either Kenny Burrell or Mundell Lowe on guitar, Wendell Marshall, Jack Lesberg or Richard Davis on bass, and Bobby Donaldson or Osie Johnson on drums. The music is fairly typical for a Hodges date, with four Ellington standards, some blues and some basic originals. In a few spots, the organists really do a good job of filling in for the Ellington Orchestra. Tasty and swinging music. ~ Scott Yanow, AMG.

Uno de los muchos discos en solitario del altoista Johnny Hodges en los años 60, lejos de la Orquesta de Duke Ellington, este LP agotado lo presenta en dos escenarios separados pero similares. Al gran saxofonista se le unen Wild Bill Davis o (en cuatro de las nueve canciones) el oscuro organista Ray Jackson, Kenny Burrell o Mundell Lowe en la guitarra, Wendell Marshall, Jack Lesberg o Richard Davis en el bajo, y Bobby Donaldson u Osie Johnson en la batería. La música es bastante típica para una cita de Hodges, con cuatro estándares de Ellington, algo de blues y algunos originales básicos. En unos pocos puntos, los organistas hacen un buen trabajo reemplazando a la Orquesta de Ellington. Música sabrosa y swing. ~ Scott Yanow, AMG.
