True to the title — Young at Heart —, 71-year-old saxist James Moody is sounding young at heart and nimble of phrase. His boldly romantic War-ner debut may solidify the late-blooming acclaim coming his way. Thanks to Moody’s suavely sculpted playing and Gil Goldstein’s velvety horn ‘n’ string arrangements, chestnuts like ”Love and Marriage” sound both wise and, well, full of youthful vim. B+
