Tribute To Grant Green

featuring Wendell Harrison-saxophone, Chris Codish-organ, Leonard King-Drums, Perry Huhges-guitar

 

            Grant Green was one of the most prolific musicians that emanated from the be-bop tradition that influenced many guitar players in America and around the world. His artistry reflected the phrasing of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins and many others that embraced the be-bop legacy. In addition he had the vision and talent to make successful hits for record companies such as Blue Records and others. Grant used his talent to re-arrange and record the Beatles and James Brown songs and other popular songs for his productions, which made money for the record companies and himself as well. Also, Grant added the Hammond B3 organ to his group, which was a commercial success.  

In 1968, I recieved a call from Grant's manager Jimmy Boyd.  He wanted me to perform an East coast tour with Grant.  I was honored being so impressed with his playing.
