Grant Green – Green Street
Condition: Brand New
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

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."
