AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release from James Moody, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.
“Wail, Moody Wail”; “Hi-Fi Party”; “Flute ‘N The Blues” and “Moody’s Mood For Love”
James Moody is one of a select band of brave jazzmen who became known not only for their fine sax playing but for their adoption of the instrument, relatively unheard of in jazz, the flute! In fact we at AVID have been somewhat of a champion for these fine musicians! I happily refer you to the following wonderful Avid recordings:-
Buddy Collette (AMSC 1186); Eric Dolphy (AMSC 1112); Bobby Jaspar (AMSC1237); Yusef Lateef (AMSC 1128, 1147 & 1156); Herbie Mann (AMSC 1055 & 1241); Sam Most (AMSC1245); Jerome Richardson (AMSC 1195); Bud Shank (AMSC 1071 & 1087); Frank Wess (AMSC1124).
James Moody began his career in jazz after a spell in the Armed Forces when he joined Dizzy Gillespie in 1946, playing hard be-bop with the legendary trumpeter for two years. During his colourful career Moody recorded for many labels including Blue Note and Prestige and played with many fine jazz musicians including Dexter Gordon, Milt Jackson, Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Charles Mingus and even our on Tubby Hayes, recording as Jimmy Gloomy on the Fontana release “Return Visit” in 1962!
