Johnny Hodges & His Strings Play The Prettiest Gershwin

CD (Item 488387) Verve (Japan), 1958 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


5.00 5

Excellent work from Hodges – soloing beautifully on a set of standard Gershwin tunes, over wonderfully warm arrangements by Russ Garcia, in the best manner of the Verve "with strings" style. Hodges was a monster soloist in this kind of setting – hitting a sound and level of emotion that rivaled the Ben Webster sessions of the same nature on Verve. Titles include "Summertime", "Soon", "Somebody Loves Me", "But Not For Me", and a fantastic reading of "The Man I Love". (Out of print, includes obi.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
