    Workout

    During his stint with Miles Davis, Hank Mobley's four Blue Note sessions with bandmates Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers are considered his finest and most lyrical work. One listen to Workout, and you'll understand why. This 1961 masterwork also features guitarist Grant Green and drummer Philly Joe Jones, who, along with the tenor saxophonist, weave what can truly be called hard-bop magic. Listeners will be hard-pressed to find a more illustrative example of musical finesse, creativity, and swing.



    Part of Analogue Productions' incredible Blue Note reissue series, this pressing claims mastering from the original master tapes and cut at 45RPM by the infallible team of Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, which did the deed at Acoustech. Add in amazingly clean 180g vinyl pressed at RTI, numbered and limited quantities, and gorgeous reproduction of the cover art--itself a classic--and you have a can't-miss jazz classic made even better. And yes, this is the same process and personnel Analogue Productions used on its critically acclaimed Fantasy Jazz reissue series, so you know the quality is top-notch.

    Remastered And Reissued As Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    In a word association game, the name "Hank Mobley" will often generate "Blue Note" and vice versa. While Mobley had a musical life beyond the Blue Note label including associations with Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis (the 1961 Quintet), it is for his Blue Note recordings that he rightfully most remembered. Mobley led 25 albums for Blue Note and appeared on over 30 others as a sideman. His consistency resulted in all of those recordings being recommended to hard bop collectors.


    Mobley's mastery of the style, his attractive tone, and his skill at writing songs that inspire memorable solos made him a perfect representative of the Blue Note sound. Even with his large number of great recordings, Workout is something special and a real standout. Joined by Grant Green, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, Mobley creates brilliant statements on four of his best originals (including the soulful "Uh Huh" and "Greasin' Easy"), "The Best Things In Life Are Free" and "Three Coins In A Fountain." The passion in Mobley's playing is exciting and will surprise many. He takes wild chances that challenge the other all-stars, and he plays with a constant stream of creative ideas. Even collectors who own a dozen other Hank Mobley albums will have to get this version of Workout which, with its superb remastering, has never sounded better.
