Never Again Review

by Scott Yanow

The "Never Again" title refers to James Moody's pledge to stick to tenor and not play alto anymore. He did not reach that goal 100% in the future but did successfully shift his emphasis to tenor which he plays exclusively on this superior Muse Lp. Joined by organist Mickey Tucker, electric bassist Roland Wilson and drummer Eddie Gladden, Moody is heard in top form, swinging quite hard. Highlights include "Secret Love," "St. Thomas" and an adventurous version of "Freedom Jazz Dance." Highly recommended.
