UNMISTAKEABLE , UNFORGETABLE MR JOHNNY HODGES R I P
right bobgreen623...several versions of this...& all wonderful hodges...
Yet another version, sounds early, sounds wonderful
Johnny is the smoothest and most distinctive alto saxophonist of all time.
such a classic.
btw...that sandwich one of my faves too...with or without veggie bacon...yum!
and the legend grows...lol...thanks moonshado...
can't say where jeep comps from, but another version of why he had the rabbit nickname was due to his fondness of nibbling BLT sandwiches without the bacon.
they say hodges was called rabbit because when playing his face always remained expressionless...but, jeep i don't get... in any event...i will definitely hunt hodges' 1958 version of this beautiful ellington blues...
In answer to jazzy, I think the nickname jeep came up because of the way that Hodges played his solo's on swing compositions.
