Complete 1960 Jazz Cellar Session [Import]
- (Bonus Tracks)
- Artist: Johnny Hodges
- Format: CD
- Release Date:4/12/2011
Digitally remastered edition. Contains this superb November 1960 session recorded by the Ben Webster-Johnny Hodges sextet in studio conditions at the Jazz Cellar, in San Francisco (without an audience). It is presented here in it's complete form on a single CD for the first time ever. The two great saxophonists were the only horn players heard at the session. They were backed by a rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass and drums. These recordings are exceptional in that no other date exists in their collaborative discography featuring them as the only horns. A complete (and very rare) octet session featuring Webster and Hodges has been added as a bonus.
