Muze PNote Of all Hank Mobley's classic sessions for Blue Note, the timeless SOUL STATION is by far the most cherished. This 1960 set features a quartet of Mobley and three masters of the rhythm section, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey. What makes this so special, however, is the sheer perfection of it all; Mobley's tenor is soulful and confident, Kelly is at his tasteful best, and Chambers and Blakey work in tandem like a well-oiled machine. The themes are all executed with straightforward swinging panache and the solo spots by all are some of their most flawless excursions. From bouncing grooves like "This I Dig of You" and the slow blues of the title track to the danceable Latin rhythms in "Split Feelin's," this is a fully formed stylistic milestone that perfectly encapsulates the hard bop era.

Producer: Alfred Lion

Artist Overview

A beguilingly gifted tenor player in the hard bop vein, Hank Mobley was underrated and underappreciated for most of his career. Though he was an original member of the Jazz Messengers and had a brief stint with the Miles Davis Quintet in '61, the majority of Mobley's outstanding quartet and quintet dates for Blue Note, full of his rhythmic subtlety and highly lyrical solos, were not released until after his death in 1986.
