Grant Green — Alive! (plus bonus tracks) ... CD

Nice one! Grant Green's albums from this time are all great – but this is the amazing live album with the version of "Down Here On the Ground" that was sampled by Tribe Called Quest! There's lots of other nice moments on the record, too, like very hard funky covers of "Let The Music Take Your Mind" and "Sookie, Sookie". The group is excellent – and features Ronnie Foster and Earl Creque on organ, William Bivens on vibes, and Claude Bartee on tenor – all grooving hard in a modal funky mode that makes this album one of Grant Green's best from the time! (Original Liberty pressing. Cover has a cutout hole in one corner, and some light wear in another.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Workin' Out!
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
A killer album of soul jazz tracks that pairs together two of Prestige's best players! The firey Bobby Timmons is at the height of his career here – cutting long drawn-out piano grooves that are among some of the best of his young years. Lytle's always a killer – and his funky vibes ... LP, Vinyl record album
