Hank Mobley

One of my all time favorite tenor saxophone players ever.

While discussing him on the Miles-List, i searched the net for some blogs, sites dedicated to him.

I stumbled in to this 1973 Down Beat Interview which is available online here.

I also found this blog, and although not updated for some years still has some interesting information.
