After 23 years with Duke Ellington's Orchestra, saxophonist Johnny Cornelius Hodges started his own band in March 1951. The band lasted until September 1955, when Johnny Hodges returned to his place as leader of the Duke's reed section and participated in one of the many revivals of the history of the best big bands in the history of jazz. The Rabbit's Work On Verve Vol. 6 - Creamy ‎(LP, Album, RE, Gat).

Johnny Hodges with Billy Strayhorn and the Orchestra is a 1962 studio album by Johnny Hodges accompanied by an orchestra arranged by Billy Strayhorn. The album features many members of Duke Ellington's orchestra. The album was reissued on CD by Verve in 1999, and on LP by Speakers Corner and Analogue Productions in 2013.

Album 1. Side 1. 1. Rabbit’s Blues (You Blew Out The Flame In My Heart). 2. Something To Pat Your Foot To. 3. Blue Fantasia.

Johnny Hodges And His Orchestra ‎– The Rabbit's Work On Verve Vol. 1 - 6. Оркестр, Джаз, Кролик. Vinyl Pussycat Records. This 1936 recording was the first time Billie Holiday had recorded a standard (I CRIED FOR YOU, with music written by Arthur Freed and Abe Lyman and lyrics by Gus Arnhe, was composed in 1923 and became a a signature tune of the Thirties) and featured the magnificent Johnny Hodges on alto saxophone. Both singer and saxophonist turned in a wonderful performance.

Alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges recorded frequently for Verve in the 1950s and 1960s, although nearly all of the musicians on this CD are from the Ellington orchestra and the arrangements are by Billy Strayhorn. Hodges is never less than superb throughout this reissue, while Lawrence Brown, Harry Carney and non-Ellingtonians Howard McGhee on trumpet and pianist Jimmy Jones also deserve praise. Strayhorn's exotic chart of "Azure" and emotional scoring of "Your Love Has Faded" are especially striking.
