CD Reviews

Green at his peak....
Anders Jonasson | Bankeryd Sweden | 06/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion Green reached his peak somewhere around 1964-65. This CD is one of his very best. The collaboration bedwteen Green, Young and Jones is super. On the opnener "Talkin about JC" (John Coltrane of course)Young sets the groove, and then Green starts to groove, for every 12 bar chorus he digs deeper into the groove. I am also very fond of "Luny Tune". It gives a kick when Green takes off right after the lead, his guitar is singing, and his playing is flawless and totally relaxed. I always felt that Jones and Green goes very well together, and that is something that Jones confirms in the biography about Green, which is by the way highly recommended to all "Green fans".(REDISCOVERING THE FORGOTTEN GENIUS OF JAZZ GUITAR, by Sharony Andrews Green, MIller Freeman Books)"
Highly recommended, but get Green's essential albums first!

"Excellent sound, great playing, and even some unusual licks for Green in "I'm An Old Cowhand" make this a very highly reccommended album for Grant Green (or Larry Young) fans -- AFTER you've picked up the essentials: "Solid", "Idle Moments", and "Green St.""

"Grant Green and Larry Young are two of the most underrated and underappreciated artists in music. Grant's bluesy style and his clean clear notes make every one of these pieces worth a listen. Like one of the previous reviewers, I was not wild about People and Old Cowhand but the other selections more than compensate. The songs Luny Tune and Talkin' About JC are such fabulously played pieces of improvisation that they carry the album all by themselves."
