Description: If those tried-and-true blues licks are starting to get a little stale, then it’s high time you got hip by adding a jazzy color to your sound. I recommend a healthy dose of green—Grant Green, that is. He was one of the hardest-swinging soul-jazz cats of his era. During the first half of the ’60s, he waxed some 50-plus sessions for Blue Note as both a leader and sideman. His smooth, syncopated lines seemed to dance atop the changes, melding bebop’s sophisticated harmonic edge with the earthy, soulful moans of the blues.
