Another Workout [RVG Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Reviewers called tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley underrated so many times that the word may as well have been his middle name, and when combined with the numerous financial, personal, and health issues that Mobley endured during his career, it all added up to a middle of the pack position in the jazz canon. He truly deserves a reevaluation. This delightfully warm set was cut on December 5, 1961 with Mobley on tenor sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums, and consists of four Mobley compositions and a version of Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Hello Young Lovers."

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Reviewers called tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley underrated so many times that the word may as well have been his middle name, and when combined with the numerous financial, personal, and health issues that Mobley endured during his career, it all added up to a middle of the pack position in the jazz canon. He truly deserves a reevaluation. This delightfully warm set was cut on December 5, 1961 with Mobley on tenor sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums, and consists of four Mobley compositions and a version of Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Hello Young Lovers." Mobley's measured, round sax tone binds everything together, and the ballad "I Should Care" is particularly lovely, unfolding gently and surely. Two of the other Mobley compositions, "Getting' and Jettin'" and "Hanks' Other Soul," were revisited, expanded, and arguably improved a year later as "Up a Step" and "East of the Village" respectively, making these 1961 versions essentially sketches, however well done. Although hardly flashy, Another Workout was a solid outing. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, Blue Note Records failed to release it until 1985, less than a year before Mobley's death. A nuanced and often beautiful session, the album deserved better, as did Mobley, and underrated doesn't cut it any more. This guy was front-line.
