1961 Session With Kelly, Chambers, Green, and Jones a Hard-Bop Classic
During his stint with Miles Davis, Hank Mobley's four Blue Note sessions with band mates 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.
