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 »

I've got to be a rug cutter
Swing out in the groove
I've got to be a rug cutter
So my jive will improve

I was so un-trucky
Now I'm super-ducky
Gonna cut back a figure
So, Gate, I'll dig ya

I've got to be a rug cutter
Swing out in the groove
I've got to be a rug cutter
So my jive will improve

I've got to be
I've got to be
Rug cuttin' me
Rug cuttin' me

Swing out in the groove
