Hodges, Johnny And Wild Bill Davis - Blue Rabbit.

Vendor: 1972
Year: 1964


Verve V6 8599 made in USA with original inner sleeve. Vinyl NM. Cover NM.

One of altoist Johnny Hodges' many solo records in the 1960s 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Hodges
