Steve Wyzard
ONE OF HIS LAST (AND BEST)

30 years after his untimely death, and we still hear the same old adages repeated about Hank Mobley: "Sonny Rollins meets Stan Getz", "the middleweight champ of the tenor sax", et al. Yes, some will always hold it against Hank that he walked the earth with some true giants and was never considered as ground-breaking or as influential as some of his peers. Even Blue Note withheld the release of many of his albums until long after they'd been recorded. This naturally led many to assume: if they're so great, why weren't they released right away? (Answer: record company politics). When Hank's work is acclaimed, it's almost always his early-to-mid 1960s albums that are mentioned, while the rest are politely dismissed or ignored.

Take a listen to Thinking of Home, recorded in 1970 and released in 1980 as one of Blue Note's highly-regarded "LT" series. This was one of Hank's last recordings before health issues forced him into early retirement. With a fabulous band (Woody Shaw: trumpet, Cedar Walton: piano, Eddie Diehl: guitar, Mickey Bass: bass, and Leroy Williams: drums), this album demands an honest re-appraisal by those who have otherwise written Hank off. A good case can even be made for Thinking of Home as a "career summation" album, as all of Mobley's influences are given a moment in the spotlight.

The album opens with a 10-minute suite, moving from an emotionally charged adagio to a straight-ahead center-section with solos, before closing with a leisurely "almost" bossa-nova. Very few could navigate so effectively through so many mood changes, but Hank pulls it off with aplomb. The late great Woody Shaw takes the first electrifying solo, and his devout following is immediately urged to buy this album to hear yet another phenomenal example of his blistering trumpet playing. "Justine", driven by Bass and Williams, is not only this album's masterpiece, but also one of Hank's greatest moments ever. This one will stay in your head long after it's over, and Mobley and Shaw's solos are simply miraculous. On "side-two", "You Gotta Hit It" provides vigorous hard bop after a relaxed opening, "Gayle's Groove" nods toward New Orleans, and "Talkin' About Gittin' It" acknowledges Hank's soul/r'n'b influences.

Don't let Thinking of Home's late release date fool you: this is more than just a "worthy addition" to the Mobley catalog or a record company cash-in. Nor is it a last desperate gasp by someone on his way out the door, but in actuality is a forward-looking statement that gives a tantalizing taste of what could have been had Hank been allowed to continue into the 1970s. This album will repay many re-listens, and I highly recommend it to all Mobley and Shaw fans, as well as to those who enjoy the classic Blue Note sound.

HANK MOBLEY Workout

One of his best and it came straight after "Soul Station" the following year. "Workout" always reminds me of city streets on a wet night like all great jazz does and Hank Mobley could play just that with some great lyricism in his playing that always flowed beautifully from his tenor saxophone with swing, blues, soul and even a little funk when needed in his phrasing. As every reviewer will say Hank did not have the big sound of John Coltrane but he sure was not airy fairy. Hank had great tone and he did have a great robust swinging sound as evidenced by this album from straight off the bat with four compositions Hank wrote and not a ballad amongst them, just great jazz of the swinging variety. The band is exceptional with the fairly new at the time "Grant Green",guitar, "Wynton Kelly",piano,"Paul Chambers",bass and "Philly Joe Jones" on drums. Hardly surprisng that "Wynton, Paul and Philly" were here as all playing with "Miles Davis" at this time with Hank doing tenor duties in the band as well. Every band member is right at the top of his game during this session with the rythmn section providing just that in one of the most vibrant manners that could you could wish for. Alfred Lion must have been jumping in the studio to this jazz workout.

The title is the first jazz, "Workout" with Philly first and Hank with the intro and the band comes in for the theme and things fly along with Hanks great lenghty solo, Grant follows on guitar with a jagged approach to start but flow quickly comes into his solo with Wynton next on piano. Philly has a shot on drums with a great result but even if he did not contribute one solo to this session he and Paul Chambers on bass shove, push and drive this album along with that superb timing and placement. This album is really a lesson for anyone contemplating how to play rythmn in jazz with these two masters of their respective instruments showing us how. 'Uh Huh" is next and one great snap on the kit Philly has for this groover with Hank and him doing the commencement.The theme is quickly stated but always returning to a reminder with Hanks great flowing solo. A touch of funk with this one in the rythmn. Grant Green was so good at this period in time and his solo is just another total groover. Wynton makes a great contribution as well with some beautiful placement and a lively solo. Paul Chambers also has a shot on bass with some great boppin' with his time. Another up tempo mover and groover in the blues style follows along and that is "Smokin" which exactly what this composition is. Hank lets you know right from the start and goes for another beauty on his tenor. Wynton Kelly is right on fire with this quick composition and Grant Green dishes out another great one with some quick skippy picking and Wynton is smokin'. The rythmn section of Paul and Philly are shoving them along with Paul Chambers timing and swing, perhaps jaw dropping is the best description for his playing on the whole album."The Best Things In Life Are Free" follows and is the only tune Hank did not write on the original release and is played with great feel. The last Hank composition is "Greasin' Easy" with blues and funk being the major mix and is another exceptional beautifully played tune with great stuff from the whole band. Even the bonus track,"Three Coins In a Fountain" swings.

One of Hank Mobley's best sessions and with the addition of Grant Green the album had a fairly unique approach for Hank. This one is a real gem from Blue Note and if you were to say "Soul Station" or "Workout"? I will take "Workout" because it is precisely what the title implies. Classic Swinging Jazz played as if it is a workout.
