Legendary Saxophonist James Moody Battling Pancreatic Cancer

Jazz saxophone legend James Moody, a San Diego resident for the past 21 years, has disclosed that he has had pancreatic cancer since at least February — and that he had decided not to receive any chemo therapy or radiation treatment.

At his behest, Moody’s condition was previously only shared with family members and some of his most trusted confidantes in the music world. Moody, 85, and his wife, Linda, decided to inform their friends and his fans of his condition in an e-mail letter she sent out the 1st week in November.

“We decided to let people know about his condition now, mainly because I felt he should feel the love from people around the world whose lives he has touched,” said Linda Moody, who invited fans to e-mail her husband at: moodysmountain@cox.net.
