Eulis Cathey Interviews James Moody
March 30, 2009. Posted by Brandy Wood.
Trying to introduce James Moody is an exercise in choice- do you call him Newark’s Own? 2007 Champions of Jazz Honoree? NEA Jazz Master? Grammy Nominee? If you ask him, he will tell you to just call him Moody. We love his humor, his generosity and his devotion to his beautiful wife Linda. Moody came into the studios on Friday to share some of his spirit with WBGO during an interview conducted by Eulis Cathey and to talk about some of his recent adventures.
If you want to hear more Moody, he's performing tonight at 7:30 at B.B. King Blues Club on 42nd St. Moody and Friends will be celebrating his annual Purchase College Scholarship fest. Tickets available at the door or for more info, visit Moody's scholarship site. Not only will the evening be full of great music, but our own Michael Bourne and Rob Crocker will host.
