|Jodie Christian (b. Feb. 2, 1932) is no newcomer having played or recorded
with a host of big names including Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Sonny
Rollins, Gene Ammons, Johnny Griffin, Art Farmer, Stan Getz, and Chet Baker (to
mention a few) whenever they worked in Chicago - Jodie's home turf. While he
was under constant demand and was respected tremendously by those great
musicians he worked with, Jodie Christian has not so far received the wider
recognition he deserves.
