The Jazz Record Art Collective presents the Paul Mutzabaugh Quartet performing Hank Mobley’s 1960 Blue Note release of Soul Station.
Soul Station is one of Mobley's best-known albums. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio and rooted in the hard bop style, Mobley's quartet features his past bandleader in the Jazz Messengers, drummer Art Blakey, and two future bandmates from his time in the Miles Davis Quintet, pianist Wynton Kelly and bassist Paul Chambers. The clean, uncomplicated sound that resulted from that grouping helps make it the best among his albums and a peak moment during a particularly strong period in his career.
The album's bookends are two standards, "Remember" by Irving Berlin and "If I Should Lose You" by Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin. Between these standards are four Mobley originals that, in contrast, reflect the best of small-group composition with their lightness and tight dynamics as featured in "This I Dig of You."
