Micky Moody has worked alongside some of the greatest singers in the business, including Paul Rodgers, David Coverdale, Frankie Miller, Roger Chapman, Eric Burdon, Chris Farlowe and Graham Bonnet. As a studio musician he has recorded for the likes of Meat Loaf, Sheena Easton, Ben E. King, Mike Oldfield, Gerry Rafferty and many more. So it is of some interest that he has written and produced an album of guitar instrumentals. A definite case of "let the fingers do the talking" (or in this case, the singing!) 'Electric Journeyman' features twelve tracks that capture Moody's rock/blues/funk/jazz influences.

With a career as illustrious as the Moody Blues, it's difficult to group together all their best material on a single disc, but Legend of a Band acts as a brief yet pleasant jaunt through some of their most popular work. While some of their early material is deemed slightly progressive because of lengthy keyboard suites and instrumental runs, it wasn't until the mid- to late '70s that their music began to take a more rock & roll-oriented path. Even though only 12 songs make up this hits collection, they do offer a definitive cross section of their music…

As much as The Moody Blues have earned the right to make a mediocre album, they shouldn't have been given the keys to the studio without a better batch of ideas than what ended up on Keys of the Kingdom. Like Sur La Mer three years earlier, many of the songs on here feel like prefabricated studio pop: programmed drum beats, sterile keyboards and soulless guitars pop up in the speakers seemingly untouched by human hands, compounded by brass arrangements and backing singers that were never a part of the Moodies' original vision…

The veterans of the Canadian Brass here show why the group continues to attract big audiences despite a good deal of competition they themselves have inspired. By now their seamless blend, made possible by the way each individual instrumentalist polishes his attack down to a seductive gentleness, is familiar to almost everyone who listens to over-the-air or Internet classical radio.

By pumping up the beat on the sound of traditional New Orleans funeral and second-line parade bands, and injecting it with doses of soul, funk and bop, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band (the group is actually an octet) has almost single-handedly revitalized the genre for the 21st century. This fun compilation collects highlights from the group's 1987 to 1993 stay at Columbia Records, sticking pretty much to the Dirty Dozen's more energetic (thus "hot") material, including "Remember When" and a wonderful version of Jelly Roll Morton's "Jungle Blues." Dizzy Gillespie contributes both his trumpet and a joyful scat vocal to "Ooh Pop a Duh," Branford Marsalis guests on Charlie Parker's "Moose the Mooche," Dr. John brings some soulful voodoo to a cover of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now," and Elvis Costello contributes a lead vocal to "That's How You Got Killed Before."

Marilyn Moore was an American jazz singer during the 1950s. She recorded one solo album, Moody Marilyn Moore. Her vocal style was similar to Billie Holiday's, and according to jazz critic Will Friedwald, Holiday and Moore were friends. She was the first wife of saxophonist Al Cohn and the mother of guitarist Joe Cohn.

This single-CD compilation doesn't do too much more than scratch the surface of the band's sound at its most popular points, but it does do one thing that no prior Moody Blues compilation ever did – it includes "Go Now," which, as the notes point out, is still the group's top-charting single in England. What it doesn't do is get "Go Now" in really good sound (no one seems to have a proper master source) or include their even better follow-up single, "From the Bottom of My Heart." Still, this body of work is pleasing and, thanks to its extension back to the original lineup, even a little bit informative, and it was the first Moody Blues compilation to be mastered in 20-bit audio. The dominant personality is Justin Hayward, who has provided the band with most of its hits, followed somewhat distantly by John Lodge, whose songs began to shine as the '70s dawned – a pair of Hayward/Lodge songs and one solo Hayward release fill out the 17 tracks, which showcase the soulful, the mystical, and the psychedelic aspects of their music in equal parts. It's a good intro to their history, and anyone who wants more can jump to the Time Traveller box.

An enterprising and extremely well-documented record, this collection is a distinct success. I listened to it both at a properly high volume, and late in the evening at a low level, when the illusion of the brass in the distance was just as real. The opening Dvorak Fanfare looks back to earlier times. The writing for natural trumpets is designedly primitive, but the composer's allusion to the Austro-Hungarian anthem is wittily engraved in the structure, and its familiarity makes one smile.

A Question of Balance is the sixth album by The Moody Blues, released in 1970. The album was an attempt by the group to strip down their well-known lush, psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. Released in 1970, the album reached #1 in the United Kingdom and #3 in the United States. In March 2006 the album was remastered into SACD format and repackaged with six extra tracks.
