Grant Green: The Latin Bit (CD: Blue Note RVG)
This album is a delightful foray into a variety of Latin styles from South American standards to New York Latino hits to jazz tunes with an Afro-Cuban tinge. Willie Bobo and Patato Valdes drive the proceedings beautifully and Green is cooking throughout. Three bonus tracks, two from a later session with Ike Quebec, have been added to the original album.

Grant Green: Street Of Dreams (CD: Blue Note RVG)Grant Green: Street Of Dreams (CD: Blue Note RVG)
A largely meditative session led off by a glorious cover of Trenet's 'I Wish You Love', laid back but slow-burned by Elvin Jones' powerful though subtle drumming, Bobby Hutcherson's consistently adaptable vibes and Larry Young's innovative hammond. First rate.

Grant Green: Green Street (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Green Street, recorded on April 1, 1961, was Grant Green's second Blue Note album as a leader and remains one of the finest albums of his prolific Blue Note output. Supported by just 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 in high gear on this unique masterpiece in his discography. Added to the original album are two alternate takes. (Blue Note Records)

Grant Green: Ain't It Funky Now!- Original Jam Master Vol.1 (CD: Blue Note)Grant Green: Ain't It Funky Now!- Original Jam Master Vol.1 (CD: Blue Note)
Between 1969 and 1973, guitarist Grant Green made a string of albums that not only topped the jazz charts but also hit the Soul and R & B charts. The music he recorded found a new life a decade later when he became one of the most sampled artists in Hip Hop. The grooves he created, most often with Idris Muhammad on drums, have permeated the club scene around the world. And the band he led and the music he played served as a prototype for what is now known as the jam band scene.

These three compilations gather the best and most influential performances of those album. “Ain’t That Funky” contains Green’s instrumental treatments of hits by James Brown, The Meters, The Isley Brothers and Kool & The Gang among others. “For The Funk Of It” collects the most popular funk originals by Grant and his band. “Mellow Madness” draws groove-based performances on tunes by Herbie Hancock, Donald Byrd and Lennon & McCartney among others. Together, these collections sum up a great artist at the peak of his popularity with the essential tracks that remain a strong part of the musical landscape to this day. (Blue Note Records)

Grant Green: Slick! Live At Oil Can Harry's (CD: Resonance)
'Slick! - Live at Oil Can Harry's' is a never-before-released recording from jazz guitar icon Grant Green captured live on September 5, 1975 at Oil Can Harry's, a popular club in Vancouver, BC Canada. Featuring a primarily Detroit-based band with Emmanuel Riggins (father of drummer Karriem Riggins) on electric piano, Ronnie Ware on bass, drummer Greg "Vibrations" Williams (Jack McDuff, Lou Donaldson) and Gerald Izzard on percussion, 'Slick!'s centerpiece is the 30-plus minute funk exploration medley of Stanley Clarke's "Vulcan Princess," "Skin Tight" by the Ohio Players, Bobby Womack's "Woman's Gotta Have It," "Boogie On Reggae Woman" by Stevie Wonder and "For the Love of Money" by The O'Jays.

This recording was originally broadcast on CHQM-FM and has been transferred from the original 10" reels to reveal a sterling sonic experience. Aside from Resonance's companion piece, Funk in France, being released simultaneously with this recording, this is only the 4th live recording released of the under-appreciated jazz guitar hero. Captured 3 years after the classic Live at the Lighthouse album released on Blue Note in 1972, this also marks the latest known official live Grant Green recording available. (Proper Music)
