En este álbum Grant se inclina hacia el blues y el funky, lo cual puede decepcionar a su fans por abandonar en parte su estilo netamente jazzístico. En mi caso trato de escuchar el disco desde la perpectiva de la época, no olvidemos que los buenos músicos en general buscan siempre nuevos sonidos, otros enfoques a su estilo y en ...

Live album featuring a performance recorded at the Lighthouse Club in Hermosa Beach, California in 1972 and released on the Blue Note label. Review by Steve Huey Some of Grant Green’s hottest moments as a jazz-funk bandleader came on his live records of the era, which were filled with extended, smoking grooves and gritty ensemble interplay. Live at the Lighthouse ...

Review by Thom Jurek Live at Club Mozambique was, according to Bob Belden’s liner notes, rumored to exist for decades in Blue Note’s Grant Green discography, but was never released. His explanation as to why is satisfactory — Green’s star had waned considerably — and makes some sense, but the label had 15 unissued albums by the guitarist by 1971. ...

By DOUGLAS PAYNE Published: April 1, 1998 For guitarist Grant Green (1931-79), the years between 1965 and 1969 were lost in a battle with drugs. His graceful, easily identifiable single note phrases had caught many listeners’ attention with a wide variety of excellent Blue Note dates between 1960 and 1965. Seemingly able to master any style, he never once diminished ...

Review by Steve Huey The third of three sessions Grant Green co-led with modal organist Larry Young and Coltrane drummer Elvin Jones, I Want to Hold Your Hand continues in the soft, easy style of its predecessor, Street of Dreams. This time, however — as one might guess from the title and cover photo — the flavor is less reflective ...

Other great organists featured include John Patton, Larry Young, and Freddie Roach. Aggressive and funky, ...

Bobby Hutcherson recorded frequently for Blue Note in the 1960s, though this session remained unissued until 1999.

Green, an expert with standards, offers “Moon River,” “On Green Dolphin Street,” and “Count Every Star.” Tracklist: 1 On Green Dolphin Street 2 Shadrack 3 ...

Review by Michael G. Nastos As a trio, this edition of guitarist Grant Green’s many ensembles has to rank with the best he had ever fronted. Recorded on April Fool’s Day of 1961, the band and music are no joke, as bassist Ben Tucker and drummer Dave Bailey understand in the most innate sense how to support Green, lay back ...
