Wikipedia : This day (December 9, 2010), in San Diego, California, died James Moody, an American jazz saxophone and flute player.

Official Website : In 1946, following service in the United States Air Force, Moody joined the seminal bebop big band of Dizzy Gillespie, beginning an association that – on stage and record, in orchestras and small combos – afforded a young Moody worldwide exposure and ample opportunity to shape his improvisational genius.

@allmusic : His 1949 recording of I’m in the Mood for Love became a hit in 1952 under the title of Moody’s Mood for Love with classic vocalese lyrics written by Eddie Jefferson and a best-selling recording by King Pleasure.

@last.fm : He is best known for his hit “Moody’s Mood for Love,” an improvisation based on I’m in the Mood for Love. He often played with Dizzy Gillespie and worked with Mike Longo. He was an active member of the Baha’i Faith.
