Far Away Lands is an album by jazz saxophonist Hank Mobley recorded on May 26, 1967, and released on the Blue Note label. It features performances by Mobley with Donald Byrd, Cedar Walton, Ron Carter, and Billy Higgins.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars, stating: "For this lesser-known outing, Mobley teams up with trumpeter Donald Byrd, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Billy Higgins for four of his songs (given such colorful titles as 'A Dab of This and That,' 'No Argument,' 'The Hippity Hop,' and 'Bossa for Baby'), along with a song apiece from Byrd and Jimmy Heath. An excellent outing, fairly late in the productive career of Hank Mobley.[1]
