Oh my, Grant Green was a very individual guitarist whose style was on the surface very simple and direct but whose work I find fascinating. I worked as a drummer with several very busy and complicated guitarists, and discovered Green's sparer and less complicated playing at that time and it was a huge breath of fresh air. And I still enjoy his work immensely. It's too bad he didn't live on into the 'eighties and beyond.

Just finished listening to this one.  It's unusual in that Lee plays Tenor rather than Alto Sax for half the album but it's all good....

I wanted a something a little heavy/weighty this morning - it's already been a rough day. I've had this CD for years - I grabbed up a bunch of DDD CDs back around the turn of the century, after reading an article about how DDD were what you should be looking for in classical recordings.  ::)  I really don't know much about classical, but I try to sample everything.

Another example of "I've listened to this a thousand time, and with my current setup I'm hearing things I've never heard before"

I listened to three CDs last night. Here's the amazing Sarah Vaughan with Basie's Big Band as back up.  She and Ella are the tops for me.  Mark. PS...the recording on this 1996 reissue is fantastic.

Yes Lon, solo Bill can be very satisfying.  He also did some solo albums with Verve...I've got the massive "Complete Bill Evans on Verve" with all of it.  The rusty packaging has to be the worst idea a record label ever had.

I listened to this one....not for beginners!  I do try to "stretch" my ears on occasion and will sample late Coltrane and Miles soon.  It took me quite a while to really get Miles' second "Great Quintet" so I know I may someday appreciate...mmmm...enjoy more challenging "Free" or "Electric" Jazz.  I also still haven't gotten into Ornette Coleman...Mark.  PS...I got Monk immediately!
