Johnny Hodges with the Lawrence Welk Orchestra (1965)

Twelve tracks featuring the smooth alto of Hodges with the Welk Orchestra. The album used a dozen arrangers including George Cates and Benny Carter. This unusual combination works. If you’re a fan of really smooth music check it out.

Highlights include: “Misty”, “Haunting Melody” and “Canadian Sunset.”

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
