Editorial Reviews

"Some of the chunkiest, hardest-jamming soul jazz grooves this side of the JB's!" - BOSTON HERALD

Green, Purdie, & Wilson is an all-star group of jazz, soul, and funk veterans coming together to make waves! Led by legendary organist Reuben Wilson and jazz guitar legacy Grant Green Jr., the group presents infectious tracks with a fresh sound that appeals to both longtime fans and new listeners alike! In the late sixties, Hammond B-3 organist Reuben Wilson began the ascension to his current status as a godfather of acid jazz by demonstrating a command of funk that helped redefine the movement. As the son of legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green, Grant Green Jr. was exposed to exceptional musicianship right out of the womb. Today, his style blends technical mastery with heartfelt soul, and it is this combination that sets him apart. The "world's most recorded drummer," Bernard "Pretty" Purdie has worked with Aretha Franklin, Steely Dan, Isaac Hayes, Donny Hathaway, B.B. King, "Sweet" Loud Donaldson, Joe Cocker, Hank Crawford, and more, laying down the beat on over 3,000 albums to date!
