Johnny Hodges/Wild Bill Davis — Wings & Things

Staying with the Grant Green theme, here is a 1965 Verve session led by Johnny Hodges and organist Wild Bill Davis that includes Green as a sideman.  It’s a cool date filled with bluesy jazz, just as you would expect, along with some standards and a latin tune.  The ensemble is excellent–Lawrence Brown (tb), Hank Jones (p), Richard Davis (bs), and Ben Dixon (dr) round out the group.

The record was engineered by Rudy Van Gelder and I believe this is the original stereo pressing…it also features a delicious cover…
