Leroy Hodges (Al Green, Ann Peebles)


Along with his peer, Donald “Duck” Dunn, his pocket passages define “Memphis Soul.”


The Hi Records house rhythm section, comprised of the Hodges brothers; bassist Leroy “Flick” Hodges, keyboardist Charles, and guitarist Mabon “Teenie” Hodges along with drummers Howard Grimes and Al Jackson Jr., moved a generation – spiritually and physically – with pocket grooves and countermelodies that fueled seminal hits and album tracks by Al Green, Ann Peebles, and Otis Clay, among scores of others.
