"Another Workout" was not released when it was recorded in 1961, remaining in sheer obscurity for decades. Unfortunately, Hank Mobley was not nearly as in demand in his heyday as he seems to be today. Rudy Van Gelder has remastered this album at 24-bit resolution, and the sound is of excellent quality. Hank is accompanied by the following sidemen on this release: Wynton Kelly (piano), Paul Chambers (bass) and Philly Joe Jones (drums).
This outing is definitely on par with his previous releases as leader on Blue Note. Track two, the blasé, lush and sultry "I Should Care" keeps me revisiting this album frequently. This is one of Mobley's last really great performances, deserving many frequent listens. If you enjoy Mobley's music as much as I do, you may not even read these paltry reviews and just plop down the dough. Afterall, even when Hank was supposedly not in peak form he was superior musically to so many others. It is somewhat shameful how fans apparently did not notice Hank's genius during his life span.
