Timely for me, as I've recently been revisiting the Johnny Hodges 1956-61 Mosaic set.  Will definitely give this a listen!

David, I hope you enjoy it. It was fun putting this show together and trying to get a wide range of sidemen, while focusing away from Ellington's compositions.

Finally got a chance to listen to this in its entirety--thanks much!  Quite a few recordings that I'd never heard or hadn't listened to in a long time.  Hopefully that Barney Bigard Black and White session makes Mosaic's label box set.  (If said set does eventually come to pass.)
