Farewell: James Moody

Woodwind doubler and jazz great James Moody passed away today. James Moody was known for his saxophone (especially tenor) and flute playing. You can read the obituary from the San Diego Union-Tribune, but, if you’re like me, you might rather just watch this. I love the weirdly humorous but deeply respectful intro by none other than Dizzy Gillespie.

    He will definitely be missed! One of the greats. I had the chance to hear him live a couple of times. Equally great on sax and on flute.
