    Why any critic would think that Hank Mobley was at the end of his creative spark in -- a commonly if stupidly held view among the eggheads who do this for a living -- is ridiculous, as this fine session proves. By , Mobley had undergone a transformation of tone. Replacing the scintillating airiness of his late-'50s sides was a harder, more strident, almost honking one, due in part to 8/
