A strong version of the "Moody's Mood for Love," with a vocal by the late Eddie Jefferson (v).
One of the Best Jazz Albums EVER
Where do I begin, I first heard James Moody on the Cosby Show when I was a kid and I have been hooked every since. He is one of the few artist who could jump from Swing, after playing with the Dizzy Gilspy Band, to the BeBop era, to what is now modern Jazz. He has inspired a many artist, like Qunicy Jones because Moody was thinking out side of the box back in the day. He was not re-inventing old standards, instead he was creating them. A true master musician. If you love Dave Brubreck, You will love Moody. WAIL MOODY, WAIL!
I have finally found the perfect love song.
I remember back in 1991 I was watching a Gap Commercial set in New York. This song was playing but it wasn't sung by James Moody, it was sung by King Pleasure. And of course I remember hearing it sung at the end of an episode of The Cosby Show. Moody's Mood For Love has been covered by Queen Latifah to George Benson who do the song justice.
Moody is World Class
Absolutely an essential for your jazz collection. James Moody is unique, in style, tone and technique. Instantly identifiable, Moody has only improved, like a fine wine, in the years since this recordings were stamped to vinyl. Of course, while "Moody's Mood For Love" is the most famous cut here (featuring Eddie Jefferson), the other selections are equally noteworthy. Please get this one and check out Moody's latest recording with Hank Jones ... incredible!
