Thanks, Marc. A great tribute to one of the nicest — and most serious — musicians I've ever met.

Bill Kirchner

Lovely tribute to a great man. Two of my favorite Moody albums were done for Milestone in the late '60s: "Moody and the Brass Figures" and "The Blues and Other Colors," both arranged by Tom McIntosh. They're both on CD for Original Jazz Classics.

Thanks for the nice appreciation for a very fine man and musician.

The Moody solo that I like the most is the one on Anthropology on the Feelin' it Together LP on Muse. I feared the speaker cables would melt, and then Kenny Barron takes a solo that tops it!

Moody's long time friend, Johnny Pate, has posted an online 'radio' tribute saluting and celebrating Moody music over at Pate's Place - http://patesplace.net/2010/12/18/james-moody/

O'Sullivan, "Red"

...and it's significant you chose flute tracks in the 2 videos you highlight... They are MARVELLOUS!!
