Ky Olsen

  Jazz pianist Art Hodes (1904 – 1993) was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States with his family as a baby. While he got his start as a musician in Chicago, his big break came when he moved to New York in 1938 and played with Joe Marsala and Mezz Mezzrow. In the 1950s, he returned to Chicago, where he remained active on the jazz scene as a performer, educator, and writer. On this 1984 Piano Jazz, Hodes plays “St. Louis Blues” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
