In 1938 Art Hodes left Chicago for New York,  where he performed frequently in the clubs on West 52d Street.

Eventually he stayed for 12 years in New York.

In New York he played first with the bands of Joe Marsala and Mezz Mezzrow.

A year ago I was writing about Mezz Mezzrow in the Panassie sessions.

The story goes back to the main subject.

Then Art Hodes played with the best of the New York jazz musicians.

Also he played and recorded with many of the finest musicians associated with New Orleans and Dixieland Jazz such as Sidney Bechet, Albert Nicholas, Wild Bill Davison, and Vic Dickenson.

In 1939 Hodes recorded a handful of piano solos for his own record company.

The following year he recorded the Art Hodes Blue Three for the Signature label with his long-time colleague Rod Cless on clarinet.

The following year he recorded the Art Hodes Blue Three for the Signature label with his long-time colleague Rod Cless on clarinet.

1938年、Art Hodesはニューヨークに移り、52dストリートにあったクラブで頻繁に演奏していました。結局彼はニューヨークで計12年間住んでいたことになります。ニューヨークではJoe MarsalaとMezz Mezzrowのバンドで演奏していました。

一年前、私はMezz Mezzrowについて興味深い話を書いていました。時間があれば私の過去の記事 “Hugues Panassie(3)”をお読み下さい。こちらをクリックして下さい。

閑話休題

その後、Art Hodesはニューヨークのミュージックシーンで活躍しました。又、Sidney Bechet, Albert Nicholas, Wild Bill Davison, and Vic Dickenson.など、当時最高のミュージシャンの多くと共演し、レコーデイングしました。1939年、Hodesは自身のレコード会社のためピアノソロ演奏を録音しました。翌年、彼はクラリネット奏者Rod Clessと共にSignatureレーベルにレコーデイングしました。上の写真はSPレコードコレクターの瀬谷氏から貴重な写真をお借りしたものです。
