Johnny Hodges Johnny Hodges With Billy Strayhorn on Limited Edition 200g 45RPM 2LP from Analogue Productions

Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes by George Marino at Sterling Sound 

Recorded during the last decade of his long tenure with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, this album finds the great alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges' musical gifts not only intact but stronger than ever. Featuring the Ellington band with Jimmy Jones on piano and Billy Strayhorn as bandleader and arranger, it is a fascinating program of Ellington remakes, including some of the orchestra's most familiar numbers, all of which have been given subtle new orchestrations by Strayhorn and melodious new interpretations by Hodges.

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding." - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online - November/December 2011
