Recorded by SUPERBLUE on SUPERBLUE
Blue Note: CDP 7 91731 2 / Recorded April 26, 1988
Like OTB, Blue Note's Superblue recordings feature today's leading contemporary jazz figures.
1st part: Trumpet 1
2nd part: Trumpet 2, Alto Sax
3rd part: Alto Sax, Trombone
4th part: Tenor Sax
5th part: Trombone, Baritone Sax
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This uptempo swing head features a trumpet/tenor unison that turns into 5-part harmony featuring the whole front line. There's a piano solo in the second half of the bridge that breaks things up and catches the listener off guard, and there's a choice of two solo backgrounds. This is a fun, challenging piece for the whole band.
SOLOS: The solos are good representative bebop changes with many II-Vs and plenty of time in each key area before going to the next.
Art Blakey/At The Jazz Corner Of the World (Blue Note 28888)
HANK MOBLEY (1930-1986). After leaving Art Blakey's original Jazz Messengers, Hank played with Horace Silver and Dizzy Reece before recording several albums as a member of Miles Davis' quintet (along with Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones). Hank made several classic albums in the '50s and '60s for Blue Note including "Soul Station," "Straight No Filter," "Workout" and "A Caddy For Daddy" with sidemen including Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Paul Chambers, Billy Higgins and Wynton Kelly. Like Kenny Dorham, he is not as well-known as his talents merit and his career was shortened by health problems. His driving compositions, such as "This I Dig of You," are characterized by rhythmic and harmonic twists and have been recorded by John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan and others.
