CD Reviews

I'm tipping the scale here and giving this funky goodness 5
Daddy-o | Beatsville, USA | 07/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First thing's first- this is Grant Green with Idris Muhammad on drums. These two guys deserve 5 stars just for pairing up. Check out the songs: Aint it Funky Now, Windjammer & Dracula- that's reason enough for me to list this one in my top 20 jazz/funk favorites. Go get it and be happy you did before Blue Note takes away the goods."
Grant and Idris Muhammed

"I like Grant Green's funky period. This is a great cd from that period; and "Carryin' On" is great too. Idris Muhammed is the greatest funky jazz drummer of all time. Essential groove music."
A one track wonder

(2 out of 5 stars)

"I'm an avid Grant Green fan, with 7 of his albums already in my collection. This is a weak CD and only two tracks caught my ears. "Ain't it funky now" is a standard jazz-funk number driven by Idris Muhammed's peerless drumming, however his version of Lennon/McCartneys "A day in the life" is something altogether better.After an unpromising start in which Green states the theme a couple of times, the band soars off into the most uplifting improvisation, starting with Green and ending with an excellent saxophone solo, buoyed up by some rare rythym playing.Is it worth the money? Well, there are better Grant Green CDs in Amazon's catalogue, but for die-hard Grant Green fans and guitarists hunting novel licks, this might be worth buying."
