In addition to boasting one of Reid Miles’ greatest album cover designs, Hank Mobley’s 1963 album, No Room for Squares, is a marvel for the music alone. Standing as one of the tenor saxophonist’s finest Blue Note entries, the album features two different quintet line-ups performing a set of 6 compelling original tunes by Mobley and Lee Morgan. Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series features stereo, all-analog mastering by Kevin Gray from the original tapes and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
