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:
"Hank Mobley: Soul Station"
Blue Note release remastered versions of three albums featuring Hank Mobley's playing from the height of his early career:
"Hank Mobley: Quintet"
"Hank Mobley: Peckin' Time"
"Curtis Fuller: The Opener"
We identify and review Hank Mobley's 'missing album' and show you how to rediscover it*:
"Hank Mobley: The Missing Album"
(* OK, the cover is for the "Hank Mobley And His All Stars" album, but the music for the 'missing' album is real enough!)
