Hank Mobley – Workout


Workout teams tenorman Hank Mobley with guitarist Grant Green for a rousing session that befits the title. Also in attendance are rhythm section aces Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, who provide swinging support. Muscular tunes like the title track and the aptly titled “Smokin’” are the focus here as the two expertly blow and wail through the changes like frenzied boxers in a title bout. Also included are Mobley’s catchy blues number “Uh Huh” and masterful takes on the standards “The Best Things in Life Are Free” and “Three Coins in the Fountain.” In all, it is easy to hear why Workout is one of Mobley’s quintessential recordings.

Personnel: Hank Mobley (tenor saxophone); Wynton Kelly (piano); Grant Green (guitar); Paul Chambers (bass); Philly Joe Jones (drums).
