Soul Station is a quartet gem from 1960, featuring a stellar rhythm section
including Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Art Blakey.
If the title of "Mr. Blue Note" had been given out to a performer,
tenor-saxophonist Hank Mobley would have been its recipient. Mobley's smooth
tone and style defined the hard bop era. He put plenty of emotion and intensity
into every note he played. During 1955-70, Blue Note's greatest years, Mobley
led 25 Blue Note albums and appeared as a sideman on many others. Soul Station,
a quartet gem from 1960, is unusual for Hank in that Mobley is the only horn,
heading a group that includes pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and
drummer Art Blakey; needless to say, a stellar rhythm section! This recording
features Hank Mobley at the peak of his powers, taking lengthy solos full of
passion and drive. 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 "If I Should Lose You". If proof were ever
needed of Hank Mobley's greatness, Soul Station is perfect evidence.
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD.
