Soul Jazz from the fifties, sixties and seventies: SOUL BY GRANT GREEN.
Today the first part of a two-part series about the soul and funk jazz period of guitarist Grant Green.
Green was the most productive artist of the Blue Note label in the early sixties, when his career came to a dead end. However, Green returned to Blue Note in the late sixties, where his colleagues at that time listened to names like Reuben Wilson, Idris Muhammad, Claude Bartee and Emmanuel Riggins.
