180 Gram Gatefold LP
Besides being one of the best tenor saxophonists of his time, Henry (Hank) Mobley (1930-1986) is widely recognized as one of the great composers of the hard-bop era, with interesting chord changes and room for soloists to stretch out (this LP includes four of his compositions). Soul Station, which features him as the only horn in a quartet format with an all-star rhythm section consisting of Wynton Kelly at the piano, Paul Chambers at the bass, and Art Blakey at the drums, is generally considered to be his finest recording.
