Third Season is an album by the jazz saxophonist Hank Mobley recorded on February 24, 1967, but not released on the Blue Note label until 1980 as LT 1081. It contains performances by Mobley with Lee Morgan, James Spaulding, Cedar Walton, Walter Booker, Billy Higgins and Sonny Greenwich.


The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating, "The music is mostly in the hard bop vein, with hints of modality and the gospel-ish piece "Give Me That Feelin'," but Greenwich's three solos are a bonus and the performances of five Mobley originals and one by Morgan are up to the usual caliber of Blue Note's releases. Pity that this one has been lost in the shuffle."[1]
