Product Details
A fantastic mid-60s album from Grant Green, but one that never got its due originally, because it was unreleased at the time - and didn't come out until a Japanese issue during the 70s.

The session's a spare quartet one, with Green's guitar playing modal grooves over rhythm by McCoy Tyner, Bob Cranshaw, and Elvin Jones. Cuts are long, and there's a freewheeling quality to the material that's only ever matched by some of the Grant Green/Larry Young sessions from the same time. Titles include "Matador", "Bedouin", "Wives & Lovers", and a killer version of "My Favorite Things", done in a very Coltrane-esque style.
