Johnny Hodges with Lawrence Welk's Orchestra

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This was one of the oddest matchups and yet ended up being fairly logical. Altoist Johnny Hodges had one of the most beautiful tones ever heard and Lawrence Welk always loved beautiful music. This Dot recording features Hodges on a dozen standards while accompanied by a string section, brass and a rhythm section. The concise and melodic interpretations are indeed pretty and the arrangements by a dozen different writers are generally fine. Plus the album cover which has a picture of the unlikely duo is classic.
