Grant Green's Jazzy funky best
williedynamite | 09/18/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Those of you who are fans of Grant Greens early work (idle Moments, Matador, grant stand ect.) may turn your nose up to some of his later funkier efforts. Personally I love it. Grant green was one of the first artist to start what they now call acid jazz and his work heavily influenced hip hop music. Volume II of the best of grant green contains the best of his jazz/ funk records from the late 60's and early 70's. What's here is the trademark grant green non chord playing and improvisationational style laced with funky beats. The gems of this collection is the incredibly fonkay james brown cover ain't it funky now and the staple of blue note breakbeats sookie sookie. Other tracks that stand out is the effortless ballad cease the bombing and the all out jam session windjammer."
