Johnny Hodges

John Keith "Johnny" Hodges (July 25, 1906 – May 11, 1970) was an American alto saxophonist, best known for his solo work with Duke Ellington's big band. He played lead alto in the saxophone section for many years, except the period between 1932–1946 when Otto Hardwick generally played first chair. Hodges was also featured on soprano saxophone, but refused to play soprano after 1946, when he was given the lead chair. He is considered one of the definitive alto saxophones players of the Big Band Era (alongside Benny Carter). more »

In the dark of deepest night
There comes a haunting sigh
Floating down from somewhere on high,
Oh, what a lonely lullaby
You'll hear a symphony in blue
When ever BOY MEETS HORN,
You'll hear a melody so new when
BOY MEETS HORN
Low and oh,
So sweet that it seems
It's like the mellow music from
Another world of dreams;
You'll hear a strange and tender
Whenever BOY MEETS HORN,
And when the music in the moonlight
Greets the morn,
You'll see him standing way above
The crowd and rockin' on a cloud
Whenever BOY MEETS HORN.
You'll hear a symphony in blue
When ever BOY MEETS HORN,
You'll hear a melody so new when
BOY MEETS HORN
Low and oh,
So sweet that it seems
It's like the mellow music from
Another world of dreams;
You'll hear a strange and tender
Whenever BOY MEETS HORN,
And when the music in the moonlight
Greets the morn,
You'll see him standing way above
The crowd and rockin' on a cloud
Whenever BOY MEETS HORN.
