Finest in Jazz

As part of Blue Note's Finest in Jazz series, guitarist Grant Green is spotlighted on six tracks recorded between 1969 and 1971, along with his first release for the label, "Miss Ann's Tempo," in 1961. This set is aimed at the casual funk and acid jazz fan, which is the reason his earlier hard bop material is substituted with later groove tracks like "California Green," "Cantaloupe Woman," and "Down Here on the Ground" (which was sampled by A Tribe Called Quest for their track "Vibes and Stuff"). These performances provide a decent snapshot of the guitarist's later recordings at a mid-line price.
