Blue Jays is a 1975 album by Justin Hayward and John Lodge. It was recorded and released during the Moody Blues' five-year hiatus. During work on the Moody Blues album that was to follow Seventh Sojourn, bandmates Lodge, Mike Pinder, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge summoned Hayward and producer Tony Clarke out of a recording session to call off the project. The tension-fraught recording of Seventh Sojourn and subsequent world tour had left the band exhausted and relationships frayed

The most romantic album to come out of the Moody Blues' orbit, and the biggest success of their five-year hiatus. Hayward has the more distinctive body of songs, but their strength as a unit lies in their vocal pairing, which is as strong here as it ever was with the group. The pair play the guitars and basses, backed by a group that includes members of the Threshold-signed band Providence.

Album · 1975 · 11 Songs. Justin Hayward & John Lodge. 11 Songs, 50 Minutes. Released: 1 Jan 1975.

So Justin & John did Blue Jays. Mike Pender did "The Promise," very dark, yet absolutely fabulous. Justin Hayward (the real creative lynch pin of the band) and John Lodge decided to go ahead and make an album to make sure those songs got to the fans. Unfortunately the album was overlooked by the public in general and the band eventually re-formed and still tours- I saw them at Bethel Wood (site of the original Woodstock) in 2011.

John LodgeJustin HaywardAt least in terms of sound, Justin Hayward and John Lodge, guitarist and bass player, respectively, with the currently inactive Moody Blues, have created in Blue Jays the ultimate Moody Blues album.
