This I Dig Of You is Mobley's best-known original song. It was not as well known during his lifetime, but from the late '80s onward it has been recorded countless times, including several versions each by Nat Adderley, Vincent Herring and David "Fathead" Newman. The first studio recording after Mobley's was on the John Zorn/George Lewis/Bill Frisell album "News for Lulu" (see K. D.'s Motion for more information about that album).
July 7, 1930 – May 30, 1986
