Reviews :

"Saxophonist Hank Mobley's 1956 date for Prestige, Mobley's Message, is an often overlooked gem of the era. Joining Mobley here is an all-star cast of musicians including trumpeter Donald Byrd, alto saxophonist Jackie McLean, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Doug Watkins, and drummer Art Taylor. Essentially a high-energy blowing session, the album features some stellar bop-oriented improvisation and is well worth seeking out." AllMusic Review

"Mobley is joined by trumpeter Donald Byrd. Altoist Jackie McLean is also on hand for Parker's 'Au Privave,' and the rhythm section of Barry Harris on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums, provides perfect support... [H]ard-bop devotees shouldn't overlook Mobley's Message, especially when they can savor this superb vinyl reissue." Duck Baker, The Absolute Sound
