Idle Moments Review: Grant Green

Grant Green was an outstanding guitar player who followed on from the great Kenny Burrell at the Blue Note recording studios. The album “Idle Moments”, recorded in 1963 under Greens name featured a sextet of jazz masters. Besides Green the sextet featured Joe Henderson (tenor), Bobby Hutcherson (vibes), Duke Pearson (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass) and Al Harewood (drums). Recommended is the opening tune on the album, “Idle Moments”, which was composed by Pearson. This is a slow atmospheric, ‘bluesy’ tune that is a great vehicle for Green’s thoughtful and soulful style. Absolutely adult and as Michael Savage would say – to paraphrase – ‘musical nudity required’!
