Biography

Early life

Garth Hudson's parents, Fred James Hudson and Olive Louella Pentland, were musicians. His mother played piano, accordion and sang. His father played drums, C melody saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano. Garth was born in Windsor and moved with his family to London, Ontario around 1940. He attended Broughdale Public School, Medway High School and the University of Western Ontario. Classically trained in piano, music theory, harmony and counterpoint, Garth first played professionally with dance bands. In 1958, he joined a rock and roll band, the Capers. He was also reported to say that he gained some performance experience from playing at his uncle's funeral parlour. Then, in December 1961, the 24-year-old Hudson joined The Hawks, the backing band for Ronnie Hawkins, which already consisted of 21-year-old Levon Helm on drums, 17-year-old Robbie Robertson on guitar, 18-year-old Rick Danko on bass and pianist Richard Manuel.

Fearing that his parents would think he was squandering his years of music education by playing in a rock and roll band, Hudson joined the band on the condition he be given the title "music consultant" and that his bandmates each pay him $10 a week for music lessons. If anyone had questions about music theory, they'd turn to Hudson. And while pocketing a little extra cash, Hudson was also able to mollify his family's fears that his education had gone to waste and that he was indeed a music teacher (Revealing a bit of the thinking behind his early fears, in The Last Waltz Hudson told interviewer-director Martin Scorsese: "There is a view that jazz is 'evil' because it comes from evil people, but actually the greatest priests on 52nd Street and on the streets of New York City were the musicians. They were doing the greatest healing work. They knew how to punch through music that would cure and make people feel good.")

Lowrey organ

Upon joining The Hawks, Hudson also took the opportunity to negotiate a new Lowrey organ as part of his package. This is significant as he was one of the few organ players within the rock & roll/rhythm & blues community to pointedly eschew the Hammond organ. The Lowrey organ offered a different mix of features and Hudson stayed with Lowrey right through Ronnie Hawkins/The Hawks, Bob Dylan and The Band, playing three different models: originally a Festival (FL) console which was replaced by a Lincolnwood TSO-25 during 1969. Later still, Hudson played a horseshoe console H25 model, as depicted in The Last Waltz. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

In 1966, they were introduced to Bob Dylan by manager Albert Grossman’s assistant, Mary Martin. Dylan recruited them to accompany him for his controversial 1966 "electric" tour of the United States and the United Kingdom. Afterward they toured some more as Levon and the Hawks. Hudson, Danko and Robertson participated in recording sessions for Dylan's Blonde on Blonde. Eventually, the group settled in a pink house in West Saugerties, New York near Woodstock. Dylan was a frequent visitor and Garth recorded their collaborations, resulting in The Basement Tapes.

By 1968, the group was simply called The Band and it recorded its debut album, Music from Big Pink, which includes Hudson's organ showcase, "Chest Fever", a song that in The Band's live shows would be vastly expanded by a solo organ introduction entitled "The Genetic Method", an improvisational work that would be played differently each performance. An example can be heard on the live album Rock of Ages. His saxophone solo work can be heard on such songs as "Tears of Rage" (from Big Pink) and "Unfaithful Servant" (from The Band.
