Art Hodes' career as pianist (and journalist) started in the '20s and continued into the '90s, eight decades! He recorded for Blue Note, Decca, Mercury as well as what he liked to call "the modest labels". These blues-drenched solo piano performances celebrate the music of jazz' greats, many of whom Art knew well including Louis Armstrong. Part of Delmark's Euphonic Series, this CD was recorded in 1976 and '78. Thirteen of the fifteen songs are previously unissued performances, 65 minutes. Also available Hodes' Art (Delmark 213) and Up In Volly's Room (Delmark 217).
