Of all Hank Mobley's classic sessions for Blue Note, the timeless SOUL STATION is by far the most cherished. This 1960 set features a quartet of Mobley and three masters of the rhythm section, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey. What makes this so special, however, is the sheer perfection of it all; Mobley's tenor is soulful and confident, Kelly is at his tasteful best, and Chambers and Blakey work in tandem like a well-oiled machine. The themes are all executed with straightforward swinging panache and the solo spots by all are some of their most flawless excursions. From bouncing grooves like "This I Dig of You" and the slow blues of the title track to the danceable Latin rhythms in "Split Feelin's," this is a fully formed stylistic milestone that perfectly encapsulates the hard bop era.
