Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 7th July
It's the finger clicking and swaggering kind of jazz, it's stepping down stairs sideways as if you're the host of a talk show, it's jazz music for dancing, it's a soul music, it's what mods were probably dancing to. And won't you just look at Hanks band with Morgan and Tyner providing fire with Curtis Fuller, Billy Higgins and Bob Cranshaw - decent band.
Tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley had been recording for Blue Note for a decade when he made his excellent 1965 album A Caddy for Daddy featuring a first-class sextet with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums.
This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.
