From the mid-'50s until Coleman Hawkins's death in 1969, the tenor-saxophonist frequently teamed up with trumpeter Roy Eldridge to form a potent team. However, Hawkins rarely met altoist Johnny Hodges on the bandstand, making this encounter a special event. Long versions of "Satin Doll," "Perdido" and "The Rabbit in Jazz" give these three classic jazzmen (who are ably assisted by the Tommy Flanagan Trio) chances to stretch out and inspire each other. The remainder of this CD has Eldridge and Hodges absent while Coleman Hawkins (on "new" versions of "Mack the Knife," "It's the Talk of the Town," "Bean and the Boys" and "Caravan") heads the quartet for some excellent playing. Timeless music played by some of the top veteran stylists of the swing era.

Brian Ferneyhough born in Coventry in 1943 and recipient of the prestigious Siemens Prize in 2007 counts among the great musical challengers of our time. As an unyielding proponent of a steady refinement of musical perception, he doesn't shy away from mind-boggling structural aggregations and extreme technical and artistic demands on his musicians. In doing so he enjoys the support of a handpicked group of virtuosos, who regularly perform his compositions all over the world. One of the most prominent among those is pianist Nicolas Hodges, who, together with his colleague and friend Rolf Hind, presents, for the first time, Ferneyhough's complete works for piano. Between 1965 and 2013, seven works for piano solo or piano duo emerged from the composer's studio, all of them destined to captivate the listener's attention with complex musical adventures and regularly putting him into incredulous amazement.

Featuring the Ellington band - with Jimmy Jones on piano and Billy Strayhorn as bandleader and arranger - it is a fascinating program of Ellington remakes, including tome of the orchestra's most familiar numbers, all of which have been given subtle new orchestrations by Strayhorn and melodious new interpretations by Hodges.

One of the giants of the alto saxophone, Johnny Hodges was perhaps the most important soloist and sideman in Duke Ellington's orchestra from 1928 up to Hodges' death in 1970. The self-taught player made many solo forays during his long career - one of his '50s outfits included a young John Coltrane - but history remembers Hodges for his virtuosic sidemanship, particularly his sensitive rendering of ballads.
