9 thoughts on “ Smack-A-Mac - James Moody - Moody And The Brass Figures (CD, Album) ”
For this Milestone LP (not yet reissued on CD), James Moody leaves his alto at home and mostly sticks to tenor (although he switches to flute on "Cherokee"). Five of the nine selections feature Moody with a five-piece brass section (three trumpets, one trombone and a tuba) and a top-notch rhythm section consisting of pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Mel Lewis.8/

Read and write album reviews for Moody and the Brass Figures - James Moody on AllMusic.
AllMusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "In the mid-'50s James Moody led a four-horn septet that played music falling somewhere between bop and rhythm & blues. The danceable rhythms and riffing made its recordings somewhat accessible but the solos of Moody (on tenor and alto) and trumpeter Dave Burns also held listener's interests".
James Moody (March 26, – December 9, ) was an American jazz saxophone and flute player and very occasional vocalist, playing predominantly in the bebop and hard bop styles.. Moody had an unexpected hit with "Moody's Mood for Love," a song written by Eddie Jefferson that used as its melody an improvised solo that Moody had played on a recording of "I'm in the Mood for Love.".
It's a live album celebrating the 70th birthday of James Moody. What I like about Moody is that he plays with a lot of attitude and humor. It's got a short intro sketch by Bill Cosby. The band features a.o. Arturo Sandoval and the now popular Terri Lynn Carrington. Great blowing throughout the CD/5(4).
Mancini handpicked a selection of his best numbers for Bop's finest multi-woodwind player on this mainstream jazz winner. Moody and cohort Gil Goldstein treat the fine tunes with respect, but can't help bringing advanced musical ideas into the mix. We won't mention Moody's vocals on "Moon River," an otherwise touching love letter to his wife.
