5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Mobley!!, 21 April 2007
This review is from: Soul Station (Audio CD)
This beautfully timed record stands shoulder to shoulder with, "No room for squares," as the classic in Mobley's body of work.

Hank's sweet, soulful sax effortlessly hums along on the operner and,"This I dig of you," accompanied by Chambers bass that just pings. Blakey had perfected his technique at this point and was at the very height of his powers, he works with the rest of the rhythm section like a magnificent steam train.

It all slides along to perfection on the effortlessly classy,"Dig Dis," Mobley's round sax bouncing to the rhythm. When you listen to his playing it all sounds so leisurely, like he never has the need to stretch himself

"Split Feelin," is a rolling bluesy number, again technically flawless. The track dovetails nicely into the more languid, shuffling title track. The absence of a trumpet really allows the bandleader to take centre stage. Things are wrapped up nicely with the smooth,"If I should loose you," another taste of seamless blowing.

You won't find anything that changed the world on this, it's a standard session with a couple of standards, some funkier numbers and a ballad thrown in between. This record stands out for it's technical perfection. For slices of pure magic, there are fewer other records in the Blue Note back-catalogue that rival this.
