2010 Grammy Awards Winner - Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group
Top 10 Jazz Album of the Year.
-- Downbeat Critics’ Poll
In 2010 it's still a tremendous pleasure to hear the great James Moody, a wonderful saxophonist with impeccable control, confidence and instrumental mastery. … Simply put, Moody's mighty saxophone work hasn't lost its luster, and he shows that Sonny Rollins isn't the only one in his 80s with plenty left to say.
4B, in fact, is a great place to not only hear all things Moody but Barron as well, as he glides through this straightahead program as the consummate accompanist/soloist.
4B offers just more than an hour of a master stylist at work, ably abetted by some of the finest musicians around. If that's not enough for you, maybe you're reading the wrong magazine.
