Tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley always had a fervid following, but he also always had detractors who pointed out that he wasn't a tenor player with the heft of such contemporaries as Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. Hey, who was? Mobley was the undisputed middleweight champion of hard-bop tenor, and this breezy quartet date allows him to air his considerable strengths -- a ripe, rich tone and a unique and sophisticated rhythmic attack -- in front of the blue-chip rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey. It's a pleasure to hear Mobley without the distraction of other horns, and it's a particular pleasure to hear the way he and Blakey interact: two masters of rhythm in perfect lockstep. Two standards and four bluesy Mobley originals (including the delightful "This I Dig of You" -- not to be confused with "Dig Dis," which follows), four extraordinary players, and one February afternoon in 1960 equals one career-defining Blue Note classic.
