Milton Berle Meets Johnny Hodges~

I asked my old buddy Vince Giordano of the Night Hawks and he was not sure, so he asked Dan Morgenstern @ Rutgers and Dan confirms it is Johnny Hodges. He thinks the bassist may be Wendell Marshall. Both men were in the Ellington band together in 1955 only, but no telling yet if Duke was on the Berle show with his band.

Here is a less cropped version of the photo showing more musicians :
