"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.
Soul Station is Hank Mobley's timeless masterpiece. Mobley was one of Blue Note's definitive hard-bop artists and one of musicís leading tenor saxophonists. This 1960 set features the stellar quartet comprised of Mobley, Art Blakey, Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers. The musicians are at the height of their powers, delivering sheer perfection. This flawless outing features the classic tunes: "This I Dig of You," "Split Feelin's," "Remember" and "If I Should Lose You." This is an absolutely essential album for any music lover's collection.
