The Soulful Moods of Gene Ammons finds 'Jug' and company concentrating their efforts on the intrinsic beauty of the ballad. In this 1963 release Ammons rich tenor tone plays with Patti Brown (piano), George Duvivier (bass) and Ed Shaughnessy (drums). Ammons' reputation as a master interpreter of ballads is solidly reinforced as he steers the ship as tastefully and creatively as ever.

Called by some, “the soul of Chicago tenor saxophony,” Gene “Jug” Ammons was a legendary, but under-appreciated jazz tenor saxophonist known for his big, bluesy, soulful tone. Ammons’ expressive and heartfelt phrasing and the ability to say “more with less” makes his ballads among the most beautiful ever recorded.


“One of the best efforts from Ammons' extensive catalog. A fat, warm, rich sax tone — you know, the one you immediately identify as Jug — is on display in all its glory on this great Moodsville release. "Feeling tired and stressed out? Give Uncle Gene a spin. Besides perfect pitch, Ammons' other special gift was a melodic sense that allowed him to effectively convey feelings at slow tempos. Here is a great jazz ballad player given full scope to spin his charms." — Stereophile


In a complementary vein to that of his 1961 release, Nice 'An Cool, The Soulful Moods of Gene Ammons again finds 'Jug' and company concentrating their efforts on the intrinsic beauty of the ballad. In the case of this 1963 release though Ammons rich and buoyant tenor saxophone tone is framed by a completely different rhythm section which this time around includes Patti Brown (piano), George Duvivier (bass) and Ed Shaughnessy (drums). Ammons' reputation as a master interpreter of ballads is solidly reinforced throughout as he steers the ship as tastefully and creatively as ever here!


Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio, April 14, 1962.
