Johnny Hodges and Duke Ellington. Side by Side

Here's another one it's hard to argue with. Hodges, Ellington (with Billy Strayhorn instead of Ellington on some of the tracks), Jo Jones on Drums.

On one recording session is it Harry Sweets Edison; on the other other, Roy Eldridge and Ben Webster and a trombone player from Ellington's band. I'm not crazy about the flute playing, but other than that it's a really classic collection.
