O’s Notes: Saxophonist Eli Degibri forms a cool jazz quartet with pianist Tom Oren, bassist Tamar Shmerling and Eviatar Slivnik on drums.“Soul Station“is a tribute to the late Hank Mobley, hard bop and soul jazz tenor saxophonist and composer who Eli considers a musical ancestor. Four of seven tunes are Mobley compositions with two covers and Eli’s “Dear Hank”. They swing hard on “This I Dig of You” before romancing us on “Dig Dis”. Degibri does a fine job mimicking the master while adding a bit of his own swagger.
