Morning Song – Jeep’s Blues

November 12, 2016

Johnny Hodges is an American treasure beyond measure.

True indeed.

Hodges’ smooth, gorgeous tone on the alto sax was an inspiration to millions, including his bandleader, Duke Ellington. Here’s Hodges taking the lead on “Jeep’s Blues”, written by Ellington to feature his longtime sideman.

Enjoy.
