Green, Grant - Borne To Be BlueVendor: Jazz Wax Records
NEW VINYL LP ON JAZZ WAX RECORDS 2014
180 GRAM VINYL.
Although Grant Green provided his share of groove-oriented soul-jazz and modal post-bop, his roots were hard bop, and it is in a bop-oriented setting that the guitarist excels on Born to Be Blue. Most of the material on this five-star album was recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's New Jersey studio on December 11, 1961, when Green was joined by tenor titan Ike Quebec, pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Louis Hayes.
