Thinking of Home

Thinking of Home is an album by jazz saxophonist Hank Mobley recorded on July 31, 1970 and released on the Blue Note label. It features performances by Mobley with Woody Shaw, Cedar Walton, Eddie Diehl, Mickey Bass, and Leroy Williams.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars stating "It is only fitting that Hank Mobley would record one of the last worthwhile Blue Note albums before its artistic collapse (it would not be revived until the 1980s) for his consistent output helped define the label's sound in the 1960s".[2]
