Van Morrison and King Pleasure,s Moody,s Mood

Mooie foto van Van Morrison uit het begin van zijn solo carriere. Dit prachtige album van King Pleasure was waarschijnlijk erg belangrijk voor Van ,wat zeker op het album Astral Weeks goed is te horen.Van Morrison zou het nummer Moody,s Mood For Love pas in 1993 zelf op de plaat zetten,op het album Too Late In Exile.


King Pleasure Moody,s Mood
 
King Pleasure (March 24, 1922 - March 21, 1981) was a jazz vocalist and an early master of vocalese, where a singer sings words to a famous instrumental solo.
Born as Clarence Beeks in Oakdale, Tennessee, he moved to New York City in the mid-1940s and became a fan of bebop music. King Pleasure first achieved popularity by singing the Eddie Jefferson vocalese classic "Moody's Mood for Love," based on a James Moody saxophone solo to "I'm in the Mood for Love" in 1949. Pleasure's recording in 1952 is considered a jazz classic


James Moody's original instrumental version of I'm In the Mood For Love, which later became known as Moody's Mood For Love
