Reviews of Toronozo's first Delmark CD were overwhelmingly glowing. 11 new original compositions ranging from straight ahead blues to funky soul to the psychedelic rocked out title track. Guitarist Lawrence Gladney and bassist Larry Williams return but this time around drummer Brian "BJ" Jones keeps the booty grooves shakin'. "With consistently powerful performances from Cannon, a batch of compelling original songs, and the exemplary band work, Leaving Mood is a must-hear CD that should rank among the year's best." - Living Blues "Southside Chicago native Toronzo Cannon is a genuine triple threat artist (guitarist/singer/songwriter) as he amply demonstrates on Leaving Mood." - Blues Revue.
