5.0 out of 5 stars Varied fare from a Green led trio. 17 Dec 2000
By Dr.D.Treharne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What's so good about this album is that the trio that plays on it had a very clear understanding of each others playing abilities, and it gives them space to express themselves. There's a variety of styles, from the latin tinged "Samba De Orpheus", (my particular favourite), to the oft covered "Work Song". The title track gives listeners a good idea of how well Green and Patton share the work, and how explosively Ben Dixon on drums propels them along. The remastering is excellent, and at mid-price this is a "must have" for fans of both Green and Patton

5.0 out of 5 stars Green at the peak of his "Boogaloo - Soul Jazz" phase ! ! ! 6 Mar 2001
By Eddie Landsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of fans of the "soul Jazz" side of Grant Green this probably THE session to have. To me, it sounds a bit "dark" at times - - If Big John's playing sounds a bit "different" by the way, its because its not really him. Its actually Larry Young playing organ... (I'm serious ! ! !) (The session he recorded immediately before this however was John Patton's Let 'Em Roll, then the next session would be with Sonny Phillips then Reuben Wilson... I don't think he recorded with John after that !) - - Dixon and Young's tight, funky yet minimalistic groove provide a great vehicle for the sometimes underspoken Green to do a lot of talkin' on that guitar of his...
Ben Dixon incidentally is still around. He did an album under his own name with Adam Scone recently which remarkably recaptures his classic sound(Say Yes To Your Best), then appears on a "straight Jazz" album with me on organ (James Spaulding on Alto). What impresses me the most about Ben Dixon is way his playing is so rhythmic yet creatively melodic at the same time, so when you play with him, you're really thinking about what he's saying and building off it... hence that classic symbiosis you hear on almost all of the sessions he plays on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grant Green and Big John 27 Oct 2005
By Ben Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Grant Green and Big John Patton playing in an organ trio, and it is similar to the other albums they did together (mostly upbeat bluesy jazz). The song "high healed sneekers" is particularly rockin'. I had never heard of this cd and saw it in a for sale bin for about $9. It is definitely a "find," regardless of the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRANT GREEN'S "MYSTERY ALBUM" 26 Aug 2004
By A. Dowd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent soul jazz session from Grant Green, Big John Patton and Ben Dixon. It's more hard-edged than Green's and Patton's earlier Blue Note work like "Blues for Lou", but it's great nevertheless. Newcomers to jazz will be a bit confused because the 32jazz and Savoy re-releases do not list the original recording date or label. Some reviewers have said that it was originally a Muse release, but it was actually first released on a small label in 1967 (I don't believe that Muse even existed in '67) The original cover was a blue design and the sleeve resembled a 60's Prestige or Argo design. The orange Muse cover was not the original cover art. So it's been re-issued several times over the past several decades. Just some helpful information for collectors. Buy the new Savoy version- it's a steal at $9.99!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Story 2 Nov 2010
By Travis Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The real story of Grant Green's Iron City album is that in 1965 ( I think) he was playing at a club in Pittsburgh called the Hurricane Lounge which was well known as a home for organ trios. A mutual friend came to me and said that Grant needed money to cop and he would be willing to record an album in exchange for the money. I immediately called Gateway Studios in downtown Pittsburgh and scheduled time. When I showed up they were just about done and didn't have a title for the one original. Since we were in Pittsburgh I called it "Iron City." We were the distributors for Prestige Records in Pittsburgh so I called Joe Fields, who was Prestige's sales manager, and offered to sell him the master. Two years later Joe went to work for Buddah Records and they had a new jazz label which they called Cobblestone. Iron City came out as Cobblestone 9002 originally. This album was recorded between his Blue Note early releases and His Majesty King Funk on Verve and I personally never thought it measured up. But 45 years later it holds up pretty darn well.
