  1. I really enjoyed that show! Somehow I could imagine some Johnny Hodges in this set, as well. Thanks, several of these are now on the wish list.

  2. You’re right! Should have put in one Hodges cut in place of one Ben. I know a long Johnny Hodges story from 1941 that ends with Billy Strayhorn telling Duke Ellington, “Find the biggest lady, and Hodges will be under her. “But it’s too long to tell here. Imagine what you can.
