Mr Mobley, born in Georgia, was a very subtle and melodic tenor.
Somewhat underrated, shadowed by the major voices of the time, he still has an interesting career that spans two decades, from hardbop premisces to the end of the 60's, during which he truely blossomed.
Mobley catalog at Blue Note counts not less that a good twenty entries, and he featured on a number of other major Blue Note sessions.
Mobley retired at the dawn of the 70's for health reasons.
Roll Call is possibly the best beginner pick, a remarquable record.
