Matador

Blue Note Reissue series

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.

Un fantastique album mid-60’s de Grant Green mais qui n’est sorti qu’en pressage japonais à la fin des années 70. Un scandale quant on écoute la qualité de cet enregistrement. Cette session en quartet avec des pointures comme Mc Coy Tyner, Bob Cranshaw et Elvin Jones à la batterie, est un bijou, l’une des meilleures de Grant green dans les 60’s.

Les titres sont longs et evoutants, et la version de “my favorite things”,dans un style coltranien, est à ne pas manquer. Et cerise sur la gateau la couverture est sublime.
