James Moody Special
(Published: December 17, 2010)

Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio notes with regret the passing of the great jazz saxophonist and flutist James Moody. He was 85.

For anybody wish to mark his life and work, we offer a Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio concert celebrating his 75th birthday with musicians Jimmy Heath, Jon Faddis and Slide Hampton.

Moody is best known for "I'm in the Mood for Love," but will be forever remembered for his inventive earthy tone, humorous take on life and his solos that critic Gary Giddins called "mini-epics in which impassioned oracles, comic relief, suspense and song vie for chorus time."

This Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio program (hosted by Ed Bradley) is
available for use by all North American public stations and listeners all over the world here: http://www.prx.org/pieces...
