Memphis Flyer Article     He's the organ player, the one producer Willie Mitchell called "Do Funny" — as in, when listening to a take before what would become the final one, Mitchell would say to Hodges, "Go in there and do something funny." Hodges plays the memorable organ stabs that punctuate "Take Me to the River" and the sweeping swells that bring together "Love and Happiness."

Go Memphis! Article     "The teacher asked me if I would play 'What I'd Say' by Ray Charles. I did and got such huge cheers, a standing ovation. All I could see was the (stage) lights, but I could hear the applause and the whistles," says Hodges. "Right then I said, 'This is what I want to do. I want to be a musician.'"
