Green Street

Grant Green


Guitarist Grant Green (1935-1979) recorded

prolifically both as a leader and as a sideman

(primarily for the Blue Note label). He performed

in the hard bop, soul jazz, bebop, and Latin-tinged

idioms throughout his career. According to critics

Michael Erlewine and Ron Wynn, âA severely

underrated player during his lifetime, Green is one

of the great unsung heroes of jazz guitarâ.

Green Street marked the guitar legendâs second

LP as a leader following Grantâs First Stand (taped

on January 28, 1961). Unlike most of his many

trio albums, it didnât make use of the organ or

the piano, featuring instead a guitar-bass-drums

format. Backed by such subtle players as Ben

Tucker and Dave Bailey, Green could showcase his

talents with no inhibition, making this one of the

most remarkable works of his whole career.
