St Louis' guitarist Grant Green
played with the pathos and lyricism of a saxophonist. Initially, he created a
unique bebop, blues and soul fusion on
Grant's First Stand (jauary 1961) for a drum-less organ-guitar-bass trio,
Green Street (april 1961) for a guitar-bass-drums trio and containing the ten-minute Green With Envy,
Grantstand (jauary 1961), in a bass-less quartet with tenor saxophonist and flutist Yusef Lateef and organist Jack McDuff, and containing the 15-minute Blues in Maude's Flat.
He then embarked in lengthy jams of modal improvisation on
Idle Moments (november 1963), featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson and containing two lengthy Duke Pearson compositions, Idle Moments and Nomad,
Matador (may 1964), in a quartet with John Coltrane's pianist McCoy Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones and containing Pearson's Bedouin,
and Solid (june 1964), that added James Spaulding on alto saxophone and Joe Henderson on tenor.
He then joined organist Larry Young and Jones in a trio that debuted with
Talkin' About (september 1964).
Green died in 1979.
