Superlatives all the way for Johnny Hodges "Second Set", and many thanks to Avid for producing this double cd and remastering to such a high standard. Total playing time CD1...79.58 and CD2....75.40mins, and a total of 39 tracks. Music from 3 classic albums plus extras, Hodges, Webster, Coltrane, Carney, Hamilton, Brown, Bellson, and others, wonderful timeless Jazz, and a full (rare) album of Gershwin ! All this at an incredible price....what more could anyone want !
As always the beauty , inspiration, and imagination, of Johnny Hodges, floats and soars throughout these tracks. If you are familiar with his "gift" to us all, then you will know about the "potion for the soul" that he creates. If you are not aware of his work, then I would suggest that you should think about giving yourself a treat, and experience the wonder that is JOHNNY HODGES. It just does not get any better !
