Second parts are available for the two-horn arrangement. The horns are mostly in octaves on the A section. On the bridge the second part has a countermelody that fills in rhythmically around the long notes of the melody. We also have piano and bass parts, which show both the melody and second part with, respectively, piano comping rhythms and bass rhythms below the staff. Drummers can use either of these parts or the lead sheet.
This session wasn't released until 1984, when the Japanese Blue Note label issued it as "Hank Mobley Quintet Featuring Sonny Clark." There was a mistake in the credits on this album: bassist Jimmy Rowser was misidentified as George Joyner (who was later known as Jamil Nasser). This was corrected when the session was reissued in 1996, with the album title "Curtain Call." This session and "Peckin' Time" are among the nine albums on Mosaic's box set "The Complete Blue Note Hank Mobley '50s Sessions," released in 1998.
July 7, 1930 – May 30, 1986
