Friday Musical Interlude: Hangin’ With Hank

February 22nd, 2013 at 6:37 pm

I’ve probably got about 500 CD’s.  And I probably listen to about 30 of them.  I used to feel bad about that but I’ve concluded that life is short and getting shorter, so I might as well listen to the stuff that I love the most.

Anyway, for an album CD to make it into my top 30, it’s got to be epic, as the kids say.  Soul Station by tenor saxphonist Hank Mobley is among the chosen ones and here’s the first cut, Remember.  Listen to his break and 0.44 and I suspect you’ll be sold.  Nothing crazy or flashy, just simple, solidly swingin’ jazz.

Oh, and did I mention Wynton Kelly on piano?
