A rare early slice of work from the legendary Hank Mobley – a live performance from 1953, and one that predates most of his better-known Blue Note material! The recording quality's aged a bit with time, but the genius of Mobley shines through right away – that bold, soulful approach to tenor sax that's unlike anyone else – and which went onto raise the standard for generations of players to come! Hank really gets to stretch out here, as most of the tracks are nice and long, and help show a side of Mobley's world that didn't always appear in the more polished setting of the studio. The group's great too – with Bennie Green on trombone, Walter Davis on piano, Jimmy Schenck on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – all jamming with Mobley on tracks that include "Blues Is Green", "Keen & Peachy", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Ow", "There's A Small Hotel", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "All The Things You Are".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
