Description

Green Street, recorded on April 1, 1961, was Grant Green's second Blue Note album as a leader and remains one of the best albums of his extensive output on Blue Note. Supported only by Ben Tucker's bass and Dave Bailey's drums, the guitarist seems inspired by the absence of any other chordal instrument. His harmonic and interpretive imagination is on full blast on this unique masterpiece in his discography

Produced by Alfred Lion Recorded April 1, 1961 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey Originally recorded and remastered by Rudy Van Gelder in 2002 All transfers from analog tapes to digital were in 24-bit resolution Reissue produced by: Michael Cuscuna Cover art by: Francis Wolff Cover design by: Reid Miles

Reviews
G. Filtgen in Jazzthing Nr. 47 / 03: "Out of the multitude of of recordings with Grant Green, "Green Street" is one of his best of his best. As a trio, the guitarist celebrates a magical magical "'Round About Midnight" and carries in originals like ... "Green With Envy," he carries the lava of rhythm 'n' blues into.. Modern Jazz."
