Hank Mobley - A Touch of the Blues (1966)
Mobley puts together an octet for the ages.
This record wasn’t released when it was recorded in 1966, due to a lack of commercial appeal, but it’s important to give this unissued Blue Note recording the time it deserves.
This LP is a Hank Mobley tour de force, highlighting his triple-threat skills in composing, arranging and inspired playing throughout. For as free and beautitful as this record sounds, Mobley wrote all these cuts in jail.
McCoy Tyner also rises to the occasion on this humdinger.
