Product Description

Amazon.com

Perhaps one of the most overlooked jazz players of the '60s, Grant Green is best known as Blue Note's house guitarist and auteur of a style that was soulfully heartfelt yet coolly restrained and simple. While Green may not have received the props he deserved during his lifetime, the rehabilitation of his reputation among players and fans is just now starting to place Green in the proper context. This set, organized by his son, the guitarist Greg Green, should appeal to fans old and new for its focus on Green's signature sound: the laconic swing and vamp of a guitar and organ trading riffs and slip-sliding into grooves that move from graceful to funky in the splash of a high-hat. Tribute features Idris Muhammad, a drummer who frequently worked with Green, and Larry Goldings on the Hammond organ. Featured guitarists include Peter Bernstein, Ed Cherry, Russell Malone, Dave Stryker, and Mark Whitfield. A fitting, hi-caliber tribute. --S. Duda

Format: Audio CD
This tribute album to jazz guitarist Grant Green swoons with the fat bluesy tones, swelling Hammond organ chords, and the 60s and 70s cool that made up Green's trademark sound. As a leader and sideman, Green recorded more than ninety albums before his early death at the age of 47, but the pop-song cast to many of his later albums relegated his memory to the shadows behind more "pure" contemporaries such as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, and Kenny Burrell. With the 1990s CD reissues of some of his best work, Green has been rediscovered by a younger generation of jazzers. Thus this tribute. All of the compositions here are Green originals, including classics such as "Matador," "Grantstand," "Green Jeans," and more---a total of nine tunes. Each song is lead by one of the five guitarists involved in the project: Peter Bernstein, Ed Cherry, Russell Malone, Dave Stryker, Mark Whitfield, and Green's own son, Greg. Backing comes from Idris Muhammad on drums and Larry Goldberg on the essential Hammond that completes the sound.
