Editorial Reviews

Between 1969 and 1973, guitarist Grant Green made a string of albums that not only topped the jazz charts but also hit the Soul and R & B charts. The music he recorded found a new life a decade later when he became one of the most sampled artists in Hip Hop. The grooves he created, most often with Idris Muhammad on drums, have permeated the club scene around the world. And the band he led and the music he played served as a prototype for what is now known as the jam band scene.

These three compilations gather the best and most influential performances of those album. "Ain't That Funky" contains Green's instrumental treatments of hits by James Brown, The Meters, The Isley Brothers and Kool & The Gang among others. "For The Funk Of It" collects the most popular funk originals by Grant and his band. "Mellow Madness" draws groove-based performances on tunes by Herbie Hancock, Donald Byrd and Lennon & McCartney among others.

Together, these collections sum up a great artist at the peak of his popularity with the essential tracks that remain a strong part of the musical landscape to this day.
