"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
No Room For Squares is comprised of two unforgettable 1963 sessions by Hank Mobley. The star-studded performances feature Lee Morgan, Donald Byrd, Andrew Hill, Herbie Hancock, John Ore, Butch Warren and Philly Joe Jones. Standouts include "Me 'N You," "Carolyn" and the title-track. This is gritty hard-bop at its finest. Essential.
