 A companion to Gene Ammons' other release on Moodsville, 1961's Nice 'n Cool, 1963's Soulful Moods of Gene Ammons picks a slightly less familiar batch of ballads (Hoagy Carmichael's "Skylark," for example, or Jimmy Van Heusen's "But Beautiful") but performs them in the same soloist-plus-trio format, with pianist Patti Bown, bassist George Duvivier, and future Tonight Show stalwart Ed Shaughnessy taking on accompanist duties. – All Music

“One of the best efforts from Ammons' extensive catalog. A fat, warm, rich sax tone — you know, the one you immediately identify as Jug — is on display in all its glory on this great Moodsville release. Feeling tired and stressed out? Give Uncle Gene a spin. Besides perfect pitch, Ammons' other special gift was a melodic sense that allowed him to effectively convey feelings at slow tempos. Here is a great jazz ballad player given full scope to spin his charms." – Acoustic Sounds
