Prestige Stereo Reissue Series from Analogue Productions  

Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray & Pressed on 200g Vinyl at Quality Record Pressings

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!

Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissue series from Analogue Productions featuring 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All titles will be mastered from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray. The 200g LPs will be cut at 33 1/3 speed vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom and come housed in tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock. All titles in the series will also be issued on Hybrid SACD.

"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
