O’s Notes: Johnny plays trumpet and makes generous use of electronic accompaniment for his sole debut. Guest artists Bryan Cook (t) and Jeff Barone (g) make appearances on a few tracks. Hodges is an experiences musician having played with Joe Williams, Paul Anka and Diane Schuur to name a few associates. This suggests a wide variety of styles and indeed Johnny samples the Jazz Ruler* but keeps it all on a smooth jazz top. There is likely to be something here that everyone will enjoy.
