AllMusic Review by

While collectors undoubtedly already have most if not all of these tracks, In the Mood: The Romance of Jazz is a good introduction for new jazz listeners wishing to explore the music at its most lush and sensual. While the concept behind the record itself may be a little hackneyed, it's tough to quibble with any of the selections, which include such perennials as Glenn Miller's "In the Mood," Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady," Louis Armstrong's "My One and Only Love," Artie Shaw's "Moonglow" and Tommy Dorsey & Frank Sinatra's "Night and Day."
