Took me a while to get used to this version of Recado Bossa Nova (more up beat than both Frazer McPerson's and Zoot Sims') but, man, it does have more verve and bounce, and the entire CD is a wonder. I can't get enough of Mobley's playing and will be purchasing other CDs by him.
Wish this great sax artist was still around so we could see him blow that horn live.
I agree with another reviewer who felt that Mobley might have been striving too hard to score a hit like Morgan had with "The Sidewinder" back in 1963. ("The Dip" does come close.) I think one could also argue that Morgan is a better composer/arranger than Mobley and that this could account for the additional variety on the other albums I mentioned. (Note that Morgan wrote all but 1 tune on "Cornbread" and even wrote 2 tunes on "No Room for Squares".)
All that being said, all five musicians play very well on this CD. So, if you like Morgan and Mobley and hard bop Jazz, then you'll enjoy having this album in your collection. You can also hear Mobley and Morgan together on Mobley's "Peckin' Time" and posthumous "Straight No Filter" albums. Since first writing this review, I've gotten and listened to both of these albums and gave both of them 5 stars.

Mobley's a great mix of Stitt and Coltrane. Great ideas, great sound. Lee Morgan and the other sidemen complement him very well.Published on September 22, 2013 by Thomas Sadler
This album has been on my top 10 list of jazz favorites for many years. Lee Morgan does a mind-blowing solo on Redacdo Bossa Nova (So does Mobley), that is worth the price of this... Read morePublished on May 8, 2007 by Katie Bowen
