    This is a solo transcription of an all time classic, All of Me. This is the great Johnny Hodges on alto saxophone solo with Duke Ellington and his Orchestra. The solo is taken from a Youtube clip (25 Februari 2011)

    This is the original link:

    I added a lot of articulation and inflections so you know exactly how to play it. Hodges plays generally very quietly for a saxophonist with here and there some very expressive moments. (I wrote in accents in some places, but note that they are relative to his kind of playing. It is not the same as the accents with for example Cannonball)

    Do you want a FREE One Week Trial of JazzWire? TEN SECOND sign up (no credit card required):

    This is Video #12, and I am thinking about the great Ellington alto sax player Johnny Hodges, and his huge arsenal of stylistic elements that contribute to his sound and approach. (BTW, this video is literally recorded in the shed! I'm south of Houston today, in my father-in-laws tool shed. It's an awesome practice space for me every time I'm here visiting).

    The Jazz Process Videos are a series of live videos being archived here by Jeff Antoniuk. The goal is this series is to follow professional saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk as he prepares for a world premier of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, written in the style of Duke Ellington, for the Baltimore Symphony. The premier is December 8, 2016 at Strathmore Hall in Rockville, MD.

    The point here is to show what is usually hidden by most musicians and artists - the ugly beginnings, the hard work, the numerous mistakes and false starts, and the many questions to be asked and answered in the practice roon. We, the audience, are used to hearing and seeing the final result, after the hard work is already done. Jeff is intrigued with the PROCESS of getting to that point, and he hopes you will be too.

  • DUKE ELLINGTON - ISFAHAN - played by Johnny Hodges

    4:30

    Johnny Hodges plays one of the great Ellington/Strayhorn ballads for Alto Saxophone. Originally shown on television as part of the 'Jazz 625' series. Of particular interest, apart from sublime musicianship from Johnny Hodges, are the quizzical expressions of Ellington during the film, as he becomes the most charismatic, and possibly expensive, music stand in history.

    Johnny Hodges, is a melodic of the stature of a
    Louis Armstrong or Coleman Hawkins. His warm and expressive vibrato and his way of combining the different sounds in a kind of glissando, have made 'the Hdges-sound' one of the most famous instrumental sounds of Jazz.
