« Moody's » would be the very last late-night hang-out with a bar still selling in one or the other anonymous north-american metropolis struck by economic crisis and prohibition. The kind of place musicians would meet at after their gigs. The way we imagine it, some of the greatest jazz figures of that era would meet there in the most casual of manners, and if the mood was right, they would end up playing their tunes to one another.

We like to imagine how things could have happened if the mood got all blue and sentimental one drafty autumn night, just how it might have sounded if all of them played and sang their most beautifull ballad, straight from the heart, and suddenly, everything became deeply meaningful, down there, at that particular place, at that particular time, 'round midnight.
