Does anyone out there know if the great tenor saxophonist, Hank Mobley - who was born in Eastman, GA, have any family who might still be in that area? I was born and raised in Eastman, but had never heard of Hank Mobley until I moved to Macon. Several Macon musicians have asked me if I knew of any existing family members in Eastman. Anyone have any knowledge of this?

Hi Hargrove, Hank was born in Plainfield Georgia - I have a copy of a letter he wrote in 1968 to a club owner in Manchester England where I am and he gives passport details
Henry Earl Mobley
July 7th 1930
Plainfield, Georgia ,USA
Passport no J203804

Incidentally the gig never happened but he did play here and its recorded.
I have tried for ages to find anything about him, do you know of any interviews - or film footage?
Yours sincerely Baylistenor

Default Hank Mobley Birthplace

Hi Hargrove and baylistenor,

I too am very interested in the details of Hank Mobley's birth and early childhood. I am doing some preliminary research for a project on his life, and I would very much like to talk to you both about Hank. I lived in New York City for the past 7 years, but have recently moved to Macon, and figured this would be a great time to try to find out about Hank's brief early years in middle GA.

Sorry to be so late to the conversation. Hoping you both see this.

Thanks so much.

Matt
