Moods is an album by American jazz pianist Mal Waldron, recorded in 1978, and released by the Enja label.[1] Originally released as a double LP, the CD reissue omitted three of the piano solos (which were included as bonus tracks on the CD reissue of One-Upmanship) to fit onto one compact disc and altered the running order; a later CD reissue reinstated Waldron's "Soul Eyes".

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "This enjoyable and subtle music gives one a well-rounded picture of Mal Waldron's talents in the late 1970s".[2]
