Johnny Smith's signature mellow-and-pretty-guitar jazz sound is showcased nicely on his 1953 release Moods. Always choosing to focus on the softer, melodic aspects of jazz, Smith arranges such standards as "Sophisticated Lady," "Have You Met Miss Jones," and others in a chordal-based style. Often crossing the facile boundary between classical music and cool jazz, Smith is an underappreciated musician whose catalog has much more to offer than just his classic recording of "Moonlight in Vermont".
