"This is a swinging album by James Moody. It's one of my favorites. He's done some really pretty things for Dizzy recently. I like this a lot, especially the first two choruses, where he's burning at full speed. Moody always plays great. Moody needs to be a bandleader, like he was in the past...Moody is really underrated and it's a shame. Four stars." - Dexter Gordon 1966 blindfold test for the track "Sonnymoon for Two" from the album "Comin' On Strong".
