This might be straight out of the magic era of jazz - the guitar work against that groove in the back is tremendous. After hearing this, you just know what John Scofield has been listening to all these years. This album moves seamlessly between the cool and the funk - and Grant Green just throws runs around with a real sense of ease. The backing players are right on the pulse - keeping the music really well grounded. This lets each soloist take the lead with a combined sense of abandon and purpose. You can just tell these players are having a great time. 'Sookie Sookie' epitomises this. Listen to Green's phrasing on 'Talking about JC' - he's pressing hard and communicating with Larry Young on hammond, whilst the great Elvin Jones kicks it up on a drum kit. There's not a lot of useful information on the sleeve - so to find out who is playing on which track is not straight forward. But that's okay - it's what comes out of the speakers that makes all the difference. If you play guitar - whatever genre - take a listen to this album on a sunny day.

I bought this album for the track sookie sookie and wasn't disappointed. This track alone is worth buying the album for if extended funky jazz jam sessions float your boat! An album to play to lift your mood and chill you out.

This is like every cool 70s movie soundtrack you ever heard. Superb.

Very mellow, very cool and very retro - If you're unfamiliar with Mr.Green, you may be surprised as many of the beats have been sampled, or will be familiar from TV advertising and period dramas....
