Grant Green - The Classic Albums Collection

Grant Green - The Classic Albums Collection

Among the most influential albeit underrated guitarists of the 20th Century, having appeared on more than 100 records including more than 30 under his own name, the late Grant Green remains a jazz legend. Although not as commercially successful as contemporaries such as Wes Montgomery and George Benson, the tone Green produced was unique. With his roots steeped in the blues, Greens influences were primarily saxophonists, leading him to take a more linear approach to his playing, and to avoid the use of chords, octaves and chromaticism. Individual in the production of his sound, electing to turn down the bass and treble while boosting the middle frequencies to maximum, his resultant punchy tone helped redefine the guitar as a leading instrument, and he went on to influence such legends as Carlos Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even George Benson. Recording almost entirely for Blue Note Records, his early output at the start of the 1960s demonstrated Greens talent and musicianship while at the top of his game, before he went on to adopt a more commercial style later in his career.
This collection, which compiles eight full albums from Grant Greens early career, features the very best of this majestic guitarists playing. Running at over five hour across four discs, this set forms the perfect introduction to the music of this often overlooked artist for those new to his work, and a welcome reminder of his finest playing for those already well-versed. < br >< br >Tracklist:< br >< br >
