“Another Workout is an album by jazz tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley recorded on December 5, 1961, and first released on the Blue Note label in 1985. It follows Mobley's critically acclaimed 1961 album Workout and features performances by Mobley, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones.” – Wiki

“Blue Note collectors greatly appreciate Hank Mobley for the tenor-saxophonist could always be relied upon to contribute inspired solos, catchy originals, and a leadership style that resulted in memorable matchups with the greats of hard bop. Mobley recorded so many classics during his prime years that Another Workout, a superb set from 1961, went unissued until 1985. Using the same lineup as the original Workout album (a trio of Miles Davis sidemen including Wynton Kelly plus Grant Green on one song), Another Workout is at least as vital. Mobley digs into "I Should Care," "Hello Young Lovers" and three of his originals, displaying a striking originality along with a quiet emotional intensity. His playing is so strong throughout this album that it is quite understandable that, for many listeners, hard bop begins and ends with the great Hank Mobley.

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI in Camarillo, CA. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.” – Music Matters

About Hank Mobley :

"One of the Blue Note label's definitive hard bop artists, tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley remains somewhat underappreciated for his straightforward, swinging style. Any characterization of Mobley invariably begins with critic Leonard Feather's assertion that he was the "middleweight champion of the tenor saxophone," meaning that his tone wasn't as aggressive and thick as John Coltrane or Sonny Rollins, but neither was it as soft and cool as Stan Getz or Lester Young. Instead, Mobley's in-between, "round" (as he described it) sound was controlled and even, given over to subtlety rather than intense displays of emotion. Even if he lacked the galvanizing, mercurial qualities of the era's great tenor innovators, Mobley remained consistently solid throughout most of his recording career. His solo lines were full of intricate rhythmic patterns that were delivered with spot-on precision, and he was no slouch harmonically either. As a charter member of Horace Silver's Jazz Messengers, Mobley helped inaugurate the hard bop movement: jazz that balanced sophistication and soulfulness, complexity and earthy swing, and whose loose structure allowed for extended improvisations. As a solo artist, he began recording for Blue Note in the latter half of the '50s, and hit his peak in the first half of the '60s with hard bop cornerstones like Soul Station, No Room for Squares, and A Caddy for Daddy." – Blue Note Records
