i have observed that one of the reasons cited for Mobley's failure to become a commercial success is that he was not dedicated enough to touring....i am going to try to get to the bottom of this.. did he tour? when? how much? here some information on Mobley live dates from the 1967 yearbook of the left bank jazz society in baltimore (ah to have been there...)..
from the link http://home.earthlink.net/~eskelin/leftbank.html i have borrowed the information below:
"The following information comes from the 1967 Left Bank Jazz Society of Baltimore yearbook. Many of these concerts were held at the legendary "Famous Ballroom" located on Charles Street in Baltimore, Maryland. The "Famous" was a charming place (note the painted clouds on the ceiling in the photo previous to this page) and was not unlike an indoor picnic in which folks from all over the city came together every Sunday afternoon from 5pm to 9pm to share in the great sounds. I heard many fabulous concerts at the "Famous" in the late '70s and early '80s including Woody Shaw's group, Jack DeJohnette's Special Edition, Phil Woods, Big Nick Nicholas and many others."
and below the specific dates on which Mobley played (the yearbook apparently covers the period between 8/16/64 to 5/7/67):
