Grant Green

Grant Green (St. Louis, MO June 6, 1935 – New York City January 31, 1979) was a jazz guitarist and composer.

Recording prolifically and almost exclusively for Blue Note Records (as both leader and sideman) Green performed well in hard bop, soul jazz, bebop and latin-tinged settings throughout his career. Critics Michael Erlewine and Ron Wynn write, “A severely underrated player during his lifetime, Grant Green is one ofthe great unsung heroes of jazz guitar … Green’s playing is immediately recognizable — perhaps more than any other guitarist. ” Critic Dave Hunter describedhis sound as “lithe, loose, slightly bluesy and righteously groovy”. He often performed in an organ trio, a small group with an organ and drummer.
