A wonderful 4 disc box set documenting one of our favorite jazz guitarist's work for one of our favorite jazz labels. We initially got hip to Grant Green on his amazing funky jazz sides, but as we made our way back through his recording career, we discovered a wealth of sublime material. The tracks collected here are pulled from over 30 albums, and span a wide section of the post bop spectrum, with two discs worth focusing on his work in organ combos, the second on quartet settings, like the Grant Green/
Sonny Clark set on Mosaic and the last his work on hard bop sides. As you might imagine, the list of sidemen's pretty exhaustive, and so is the track lising, but rest assured there's plenty of solid material here, like "Baby's Minor Lope" off Grant's First Stand, "Swingin At Sugar Ray's" off Baby Face Willette's Face To Face, "Bop Bop Bing Bash" off George Braith
's Soul Stream, "Let 'Em Roll" off John Patton's Let 'Em Roll, "Talkin' Bout JC" off Talkin' Bout, "Plaza Del Toros" off Larry Young's "Into Somethin", "Round Midnight" off Green Street, "It Ain't Necessarily So" off Nigeria, "Uh Huh" off Hank Mobley's Workout, "Blues For Charlie" off Ike Quebec's Blue & Sentimental and "A Tune For Richard" off Horace Parlan's Happy Frame Of Mind, plus many, many more.
