Hank Mobley Soul Station
In other words, Hank Mobley is at the head of a quartet that is finely tuned to these needs and in a way that lets his creativity shine through. The opener, the Irving Berlin standard "Remember", initially promises something more ordinary than might be expected, but any sense of underachievement is quickly dispersed once Hank Mobley's first solo kicks in. There is strength and direction in his playing.
He seems to have overcome that somewhat featureless saxophone Hank Mobley Soul Station that drags down so many of his finest recorded performances. And when Wynton Kelly's solo follows full of characteristic verve and imagination, the level of expectation for this and the remainder of the album rises measurably.
At the heart of the album are four of those slinky blues-based hard bop compositions that were Hank Mobley's real strength. There is a paired down simplicity that is key to its success. Again Hank Mobley solos expressively. There has been much comment about how Hank Mobley can subtly stretch time as he plays, stretching the signature, interrogating Chakachas New Sound Jungle Fever notions of meter.
For example, Miles Davis found difficulty keeping Hank Mobley in his band because he considered that he played behind the beat. However, though it may not be to everyone's taste, this ability to stretch time is at the heart of Hank Mobley's originality and is well represented here and on most of the solos on the album.
Surprisingly, just as the track seems to be getting into its stride, it is faded out. The title track, "Soul Station", returns to low-down and funky blues with Hank Mobley's sax playing close to the best of his career.
The band open out into a relaxed space where time seems almost to stand suspended with fine piano and bass soloing before the return to the closing theme. The album closes with a further standard, the Robin—Ranger composition "If I Should Lose You", very much in the same vein as the opening track.
There is an interesting balance with the four Mobley compositions sandwiched between the two standards. Hank Mobley Soul Station Mobley fell out of favour as jazz was temporarily eclipsed Santana Milagro other musics in the 70's and was unable to find his way back once jazz started to recover. If one album amongst the many excellent albums that he produced has to be selected, "Soul Station" is the strongest testament to the music of this great musician.
