180g Vinyl 45rpm Double LP!

This latest album from tenor saxophonist Bennie Wallace (ex-Audioquest and Enja Records and a familiar audiophile artist) is one of his finest and
most lyrical sessions to date. Recorded direct to 2-track at Systems 2 in New York in May the session features some of the hottest jazz musicians currently working in the US: Mulgrew Miller (piano), Peter Washington (bass)
and Lewis Nash (drums).

The performances include the following Love For Sale. I Concentrate On You, A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing, When A Woman Loves A Man, April In Paris,Milestones and Con Alma.

The sound and feel of the album is very close to that of the great Moodsville and Prestige recordings of the 50s and 60s featuring artists like Gene Ammons. This album is a tribute to those great recordings hence the title Moodsville. There are stunning versions of April In Paris, A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing and When A Woman Loves A Man. This is the kind of beautiful, smoky, full bodied and ballad-filled tenor sax album that audiophiles just love!
