The Soulful Moods of Gene Ammons is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded in 1962 and released on the Moodsville label.[3]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "A companion to Gene Ammons' other release on Moodsville, 1961's Nice an' Cool, 1963's Soulful Moods of Gene Ammons picks a slightly less familiar batch of ballads... Ammons himself is typically excellent: few tenors in the '60s had his way with a ballad".[2]
