No Room for Squares: Vinyl LP5524252
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 20th October
Hank's having a laugh picking this band to play 'No Room For Squares', a cast of greats but let's not forget Hank's leading this with his melodic smooth and free-flowing tenor sax, which ends up playing a merry harmony with Lee Morgan's trumpet throughout.
In addition to boasting one of Reid Miles’ greatest album cover designs, Hank Mobley’s 1963 album, No Room for Squares, is a marvel for the music alone. Standing as one of the tenor saxophonist’s finest Blue Note entries, the album features two different quintet line-ups performing a set of 6 compelling original tunes by Mobley and Lee Morgan.
