James Moody is ill and will not be able to be present at the show. Join Yoshi’s in an all-star tribute and celebration to the great Mr. Moody. Performers include Frank Wess, Joey DeFrancesco, Nnenna Freelon and more.
For over six decades, saxophone master James Moody has serenaded lovers with his signature song Moody’s Mood for Love an improvisation on the chord progressions of I’m in the Mood for Love.
Whether Moody is playing the soprano, alto, tenor, or flute, he does so with deep resonance and wit. Moody has a healthy respect for tradition, but takes great delight in discovering new musical paths, which makes him one of the most consistently expressive and enduring figures in modern jazz today.
