Feature on Hank Mobley

Much listened to by hard bop fans but critically undervalued, Hank Mobley's music deserves more attention than it gets.

This month, September 2008, we attempt to redress the balance a little:

We select and review in detail Hank Mobley's "Soul Station" as one of the 100 greatest jazz albums of all time:

Good listening!

(* OK, the cover is for the "Hank Mobley And His All Stars" album, but the music for the 'missing' album is real enough!)
