Album Notes
Beautiful sounding, melancholic jazz saxophone album of tenor saxophonist Ruud de Vries. This album features many prominent musicians from the Dutch jazz scene, like pianist Jonn Reyna and tenor sax giant Hans Dulfer. One track features the soulful blues singer Deitra Farr from Chicago USA.

Except for two tracks, this unique ballad album is entirely instrumental. Ruud de Vries sounds bigger, warmer and broader than ever before. If you like the sounds of old school tenorists like Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster and Don Byas, you will surely appreciate the tenor sound of Ruud de Vries. On one track ('Left Alone') you can hear Ruud de Vries play the alto saxophone instead of his tenor.

Moodprints features two original compositions by Ruud de Vries ('The Sum of Life' and 'Talk About Love'). One composition is written by Hans Dulfer ('A Home is Not a House'). The other tracks are jazz classics and jazz interpretations of famous pop songs like 'Wishing on a Star' (Rose Royce) and 'Prayer in C' (Lily Wood & The Prick).

Every track was recorded with a different line-up, in order to produce a versatile, fresh sounding ballad album, keeping you alert.. Moodprints got many excellent reviews by public and press, like a 4 stars review in Holland's No.1 jazz magazine Jazzism.

All tracks on Moodprints are about (the side effects) of love. No wonder this album appeals to both jazz lovers as neutral music lovers. The song 'Talk About Love' (written by De Vries, featuring blues singer Deitra Farr), is reminiscent of the old school soul music.

Moodprints is one of these rare albums, where everything falls perfectly in place. Not to be missed!
