One can scarcely remember the last time an anticipated "new" release has afforded as much immediate pleasure as this one. Go with a single horn player-arguably the most melodically fertile tenor saxophonist of his time-and give him the support of a rhythm section once cherry-picked by Miles Davis. The result is not merely predictable excellence but music that's frequently as surprising as it is satisfying. You may choose to view this session as Mobley's Workout (Blue Note, 1961) minus Grant Green, It's on the same track as the essential Soul Station (Blue Note, 1960), the only difference being the drummers: Blakey's emotive forcefulness is replaced by Philly Joe Jones' hip finesse.
