Inside The Groove

An interesting duo performance by legendary Chicago pianist Art Hodes.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Art Hodes was born and grew up in Chicago, where he saw and listened to many great Chicago Jazz musicians. Later he started his career as a jazz pianist, then he had played a very important part of Chicago Jazz especially in the 1940s.

This album, consisting of all blues tracks, is a simple dialogue between Art Hodes and Truck Parham. Although there is not a thrilling musical battles between the two, the performances may present Art's root in music.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
