Vinyl Reissue Series Commemorates 65th Anniversary of
Prestige Records and 90th Birthday of Legendary Engineer Rudy Van Gelder!
A short but intensely cool set from a formidable quintet led by Miles Davis and
featuring Teddy Charles on vibes, Elvin Jones on drums, Charles Mingus on double
bass, and Britt Woodman on trombone. Recorded in 1955 by legendary engineer Rudy
Van Gelder at his studio in Hackensack, NJ, Blue Moods is the epitome of '50s
cool jazz. A laid-back, introspective set, the tracks ebb and blow as Davis'
trademark mellow-tone weaves deftly through Charles' vibe chording, which drifts
across the sonic pallet like harmonic clouds. An absolute must-have for fans of
the cool jazz genre, Blue Moods is ice cold - an absolute treasure on vinyl.
