'Hodges's own work is longoverdue a comprehensiverevaluation that doesn't take theEllington material as the onlymeasure. He was a remarkableand multi-faceted musicianwhose vision was sometimesblurred by resentment butglorious when allowed to shinethrough unfettered.'PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ'The youngsters of bebop andhard-bop could well ignoreconventions, but the era ofswing continued thanks to these(more or less) old men. And farfrom making us feel blue, theirblues brings smiles to all faces.This is great art.' Jazz Magazine *****1/2 AMG:'The leader's chops are best exhibited in the ballads and blues features, though his originalsmerit attention, too. Hodges hardly hogs the spotlight; he obviously takes his share of solos butgenerously features his guests and associates from the Ellington band. Some of the other veteransappearing in this collection include Roy Eldridge, Vic Dickenson, and Ben Webster. The atmosphereis friendly and swinging, with the feeling that each take came together quickly, whether or not thatwas actually the case. An essential purchase for swing fans'. (Ken Dryden)
