For 2014, Blue Note — along with Universal Music Enterprises — is launching a major 75th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative that is dedicated to the proposition that Blue Note's catalog should be readily available at a low cost — featuring high quality pressings and authentic reproductions of Blue Note's iconic packaging.

Soul Station is Hank Mobley's acknowledged masterpiece. Mobley's hot, brilliantly constructed solos have a smooth sound and an easy feel. With Miles Davis at the time, Mobley is joined by band mates Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers along with a magnificent Art Blakey. A true classic.

This album features Hank Mobley at the peak of his powers, taking lengthy solos full of passion and drive, balancing exciting ideas with a thoughtful approach. His four originals include his most famous composition, "This I Dig Of You," which he squeezes for every ounce of its expressive power. Hank plays with heartbreaking lyricism on the two standards "If I Should Lose You and "Remember" and creates masterful statements throughout this essential set. If proof were ever needed of Hank Mobley's greatness, Soul Station is perfect evidence.
