Although it is billed as a Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges album, Side by Side is a 1959 album mostly under the leadership of Johnny Hodges, Duke Ellington's alto saxophonist for many years. Ellington only appears on three of this album's tracks. The album places Hodges at the fore, backing him with piano by Ellington or Billy Strayhorn and providing other accompaniment by well-known jazz figures like Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Harry "Sweets" Edison and Jo Jones.

Triple Play is an album by American jazz saxophonist Johnny Hodges recorded in 1967 and released on the RCA Victor label. Ellington hired Nance to replace trumpeter Cootie Williams, who had joined Benny Goodman, in 1940. Nance's first recorded performance with Ellington was at the North Dakota ballroom dance. Indeed, when Cootie Williams returned to the band more than twenty years he would play Nance's solo on "A Train" exactly as the original. Nance was featured on violin and was the only violin soloist featured in Ellington's orchestra, he is one of the better known male vocalists associated with Ellington's orchestra.
