A Few Minutes with Johnny Hodges

www.jazzvideoguy.tv presents Johnny Hodges, in concert. Possessor of one of the most beautiful tones www.jazzvideoguy.tv presents Johnny Hodges, in concert. Possessor of one of the most beautiful tones ever heard in jazz, altoist Johnny Hodges formed his style early on and had little reason to change it through the decades. Although he could stomp with the best swing players and was masterful on the blues, Hodges' luscious playing on ballads has never been topped. He played drums and piano early on before switching to soprano sax when he was 14. Hodges was taught and inspired by Sidney Bechet, although he soon used alto as his main ax; he would regretfully drop soprano altogether after 1940. His early experiences included playing with Lloyd Scott, Chick Webb, Luckey Roberts, and Willie "The Lion" Smith (1924), and he also had the opportunity to work with Bechet. However, Johnny Hodges' real career began in 1928 when he joined Duke Ellington's orchestra. He quickly became one of the most important solo stars in the band and a real pacesetter on alto; Benny Carter was his only close competition in the 1930s. Hodges was featured on a countless number of performances with Ellington and also had many chances to lead recording dates with Ellington's sidemen. Whether it was "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," "Come Sunday," or "Passion Flower," Hodges was an indispensable member of Ellington's orchestra in the 1930s and '40s. It was therefore a shock, in 1951, when he decided to leave Duke Ellington and lead a band of his own. Hodges had a quick hit in "Castle Rock" (which ... Length: 00:06:21

Duke Ellington - Isfahan

Watching the Duke Ellington Jazz 65 show (kindly encoded by Mr lfbarfe), I was VERY taken with the performance of Isfahan, from the "Far East Suite." I've chopped it out to share on YouTube, partly so I can keep it handy. Hope you enjoy it. Johnny Hodge's playing is extraordinarily beautiful, very warm and emotive. If you like this, then check out Demonoid for the full thing. Length: 00:03:25

My Side of the Story - Hodges - With Lyrics

I heard this song on Criminal minds and loved it. (: I noticed it wasn't very popular so I wanted to I heard this song on Criminal minds and loved it. (: I noticed it wasn't very popular so I wanted to make lyrics for it. (: I do not own this song, Criminal Minds, or any of the pictures in the slideshow (except three), much to my dismay. Enjoy! (: _Just incase you find the lyrics difficult to read.._ Cold wind blows, I am shivering My body aches as my heart is breaking Why is life making me hollow? Why is happiness casting me in the shadows? In the shadows. Hold on, dont turn and walk away Save me And I cried these words but nobody came Im all alone, running scared Losing my way in the dark I tried to get up, stand on a prayer But I keep crashing down hard This is my side of the story Only my side of the story Nobody cares, nobodys there, no one will hear My side of the story Emptiness its all around me I try to catch my breath I barely survive and I Cant go on and I come undone and theres Nothing left in me Hold on, dont turn and walk away save me And I cried these words but nobody came Im all alone, running scared Losing my way in the dark I tried to get up, stand on a prayer But I keep crashing down hard This is my side of the story Only my burden to bear Nobody cares, nobodys there, no one will hear As I fall down As I fall in And I cried these words but nobody came Im all alone, running scared Losing my way in the dark I tried to get up, stand on a prayer But I keep crashing down hard This is my side of the story Only my side of the story My side of the story ...
