5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar! January 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I received this album as a Christmas gift (thanks, son!). I am biased, as James Moody is one of my all time favorite jazz musicians. On this new release (IPO, 2008), James Moody (tenor sax and flute), Hank Jones (piano), Todd Coolman (bass), and Adam Nussbaum (drums) swing as hard as possible. Moody's playing is fresh and full of fire; at almost 84-years-old, he shows absolutely no signs of slowing down.

Hank Jones, age 90, is also in fine form. His comping seems perfect, while his soloing is as inspiring as ever. Like Moody, Jones shows no sign of declining skill or energy.

The rest of the group, Coolman and Nussbaum, plays at a consistently high level. These four jazz cats are truly world class and a joy to hear.

While all 12 tracks are wonderful, my favorite is Body and Soul. While this tune has been recorded countless times, Moody makes it sound brand new.

If you truly love jazz at its finest, this album is a must for your collection.

I give this album 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Fine Wine August 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I admit it. I'm a James Moody fan boy. I have tons of his albums going back to the late 50s. Believe me when I tell you that his fire burns brightly here. Just two notes out of his horn and you instantly recognize Brother Moody.

Please listen to Birk's Works. Amazing!

Listen to James' amazing flute rendition of "Old Folks". One of my all time favorites.

I play sax, and during open jam sessions, a game is played among the improvisers. It is called a "cutting contest". The aim is to out perform everyone else on the stand with your instrumental pyrotechnics. Well Moody carries a might axe here (no pun intended). This guy is fabulous. No one would stand a chance!

Hank Jones is has been putting it together forever. Now in his nineties, he is as formidable as ever. He has been the back bone of many significant small groups through the years. Fluid and melodic, his ability to swing is aptly demonstrated here.

This is an album you really should add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all-inclusive "our": dessert time June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
We venerate wealth and power but cursorily dismiss art. We would do well to heed the poet Shelley who, in "The Defense of Poetry," calls artists the unacknowledged legislators of the world, the only true lawmakers, the cartographers of the human heart, of all that is beautiful, lasting, immortal: they are the hierophants who take us out of the present moment, revealing past and future while making us aware of what it means to be truly free. They embody James Baldwin's message in "Sonny's Blues," a living mirror to each of us reflecting us to ourselves, revealing the creative potential that is the birthright of every human child. Musicians are poets who speak in a more universal, direct, authentic language: as the poet Robert Browning said, "'Tis musicians who know."

James Moody occupied the same bandstand as all of the other heroic prophets who comprised the company of saints at Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase back in the '70s and '80s: Sonny Stitt, Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon, Lockjaw Davis, Zoot and Al, Stanley Turrentine, Clifford Jordan--just to name a few. And it was Moody--not Bird, Diz, Bud, Clifford Brown--who recorded an improvised solo on "I'm in the Mood for Love" in Sweden in 1949 that inspired the first of the vocalese transcriptions that would lead to the popularity of King Pleasure, Eddie Jefferson, Lambert Hendricks Ross, Manhattan Transfer.

It was Hank Jones who preceded Oscar Peterson as "house pianist" for Norman Granz on the annual Jazz at the Philharmonic tours and, later, as the favorite accompanist of Ella Fitzgerald.

4.0 out of 5 stars a delightful experience January 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a compilation of jazz standards by two, now deceased, jazz icons. James Moody and Hank Jones truly complement each other with their propensities to create melodic masterpieces.
