5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Grant Green album September 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Available once again, with some superb re-mastering, this album recorded in 1961 has stood the test of time magnificently.The other players on the album all brought something different to the previous two Grant Green albums for Blue Note in that Jack McDuff had fronted a band with Green when he had first arrived in NYC, and the styles of the two of them meshed perfectly. Yusef Lateef brought a different style of horn playing (and of course his excellent flute playing) from previous albums. The drummer on the session, Al Harewood was not a propulsive drummer, but given the nature of the recording on this (mainly) after hours style album was the perfect choice.Perhaps the stand out track is "Blues in Maude's flat". At 14.01 it gives everybody a chance to stretch out and solo as well as providing some great ensemble playing. Lateef's solo steals it,only just, because McDuff and Green both give stellar solos, but the track is greater than the sum of its parts.The'bonus' track "Green's Greenery" was apparently the first tune to be recorded, and it has a wonderful looseness that pervades the whole track. On Rodgers and Hart's "My Funny Valentine" Lateef leads off with a flute introduction that sets the tone for the whole reflective reading of the piece.However, this isn't really an album from which you pick tracks, so much as an enjoyable and tasty workout that calls for you to hit the 'repeat' button. As with all Blue Note albums it's difficult to know how long it will be available, so best invest in it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Classic May 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This wonderful recording certainly gets no respect, sitting here with one review and languishing in cut-out bins at ridiculously low prices. Heck, it doesn't even make the top 10 Amazon searches for Grant Green!
The reviewer from the U.K. said practically all there is to say, all I would add is that for jazz lovers this is a terrific companion to Kenny Burrell's much more respected Midnight Blue. Top-notch Blue Note guiter-led sessions with a smoky, soulful, bluesy vibe. For non-jazz lovers looking to pick up some atmospheric late-night guitar jazz, here it is and cheap too!
Green's take on the standard "My Funny Valentine" is my favorite instrumental version ever (Chet Baker's is my favorite vocal) with Yusef Lateef's sublime flute work and admirable restraint from all players over it's extended nine minutes.
Also, I find the previously unreleased "Green's Greenery" to be the catchiest number on the whole thing, a great addition to the reissue. Such is the quality of this session that such a winning piece was left off the original.
All in all this is a great reissue at a great price. Mine sits proudly next to Midnight Blue on the jazz shelf.

Green is in characteristically good form, and it's a kick to hear Lateef playing straightahead and without resorting to his exotic paraphernalia kit (not even on his dates with Cannonball does he play with more soul--his simple, carefully developed solo on "Blues in Maude's Flat" with its allusion to "Can't Help Lovin' That Man" worthy of transcription by any young tenor player). Harewood is an underrated, swinging drummer, supplying even more fire than Elvin does on his dates with Grant Green. McDuff will clinch the deal for some. He certainly ensures a grooving, cooking session (though like so many B3 players, his chords and right-hand licks can become familiar in a hurry, making him the least interesting of the three soloists). And the session, above all, captures Green's full, rich sound (dig his allusion to Diz' "Round Midnight" coda at the conclusion of "Valentine").

If Burrell's "Midnight Blue" is 5 stars, "Grantstand" is 5 and 1/2. Besides this one, Green's acclaimed "Idle Moments" is a must-have--if for the title cut alone. But, surprisingly, Green's "I Want to Hold Your Hand" is the Blue Note session I return to most frequently (out of the four in my collection). Larry Young is as light on the behemoth as Tommy Flanagan on a Steinway; Elvin plays tight and right without any danger of overheating; Mobley is typically perfect on each of his turns. At the very least, any group capable of making that stupid Beatles tune worth repeated listens deserves some sort of medal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the Grant Green collection March 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that on the first few listenings, "Grantstand" did not grab me the way "Idle Moments" and "Matador" had. The sound is funkier, as you would expect from a lineup that includes Yusef Lateef, Jack McDuff and Al Harewood, a bit closer to the less satisfying releases Grant put out in the '70s. Over time, however, the CD exerts a sly pull. It's a worthy addition to the Green library.
The highlight for me is "Blues in Maude's Flat," a flawless workout that allows each band member to shine. McDuff's organ pulls seductively underneath Green and Lateef's on-the-money statements, and the band fuses as if it had been playing together since they were kids.
Another plus is the bonus inclusion of "Grant's Greenery," one of the guitarist's signature tunes. The foursome also changes up the mood with an introspective take on "My Funny Valentine."
This is a relaxed session that won't blow you away. Still, you'll find yourself coming back to hear some pretty satisfying testifying from some jazz masters.
