5.0 out of 5 stars Very smooth jazz guitar, 26 Aug. 2003
By 
This review is from: Idle Moments (Audio CD)
I picked up this CD by chance as the store I was in had an offer on Blue Note CD's. I've never been a big jazz fan, but love guitar based music so I thought I would give this a chance and I was blown away! The title track is worth the CD price alone. It falls 2 seconds short of 15 minutes, but there isn't a dull moment on this mellow smoky track which is pure heaven to listen to. Grant Green is an amazing guitarist, very smooth, and the rest of the sextet (piano, sax, drums, bass and vibes) play just as well. The second track, Jean de Fleur, ups the tempo nicely after Idle Moments and the third track, Django, takes the pace back down again with a brilliant melancholic intro before another inspired Green solo. Track 4, Nomad, is another faster paced number, ending the album perfectly. The Blue Note RVG edition also includes alternate takes of Jean de Fleur and Django, which are also a pleasure to hear. I can't believe Grant Green was such an underrated and unsung jazz guitarist in his time. This is a perfect place to start any jazz collection. I would also recommend the Grant Green Blue Note CD 'Green Street' if you want to hear the guitarist in a more intimate setting of a trio (with just bass and drums).
