Thank you for bringing these tracks to people's attention. They are some of Moody's best work from his early days. For musicians that read your blog, I have transcribed a number of Moody's solos from these recording dates. The transcriptions are available for study on my website, www.scooby-sax.com

My uncle Moody, and his lovely wife linda were the coolest couple of grown up kids you ever wanted to meet. While he was on most stages, she was backstage keeping business right with a smile on her face, the money in an envolope and Diamond on her finger so big it would blind you. I asked her once if she was afraid to wear such a big diamond. She responded say, "you don't know who your uncle is"? I did'nt. I learned of his greatness and of their philanthropic activities, and of all the meals on wheels she prepaired and deliveried with that same smile, the same money and the same diamond wedding ring that she is. James Moody lives!
