This release presents the complete Grant Green LP Remembering Grant Green (Blue Note Jap-GXF-3071), a wonderful trio session on which he is backed only by Wilbur Ware on bass and Al Harewood on drums (an unusual setting for the guitarist, who was most often captured with an organist in this intimate format). No other recordings by Green with this trio exist! In addition to the six tunes on the original album, a reading of “You Stepped Out of a Dream” and an alternate take of “If I Had You”, which complete the session. The only two existing tracks from a quartet date by Green with pianist Sonny Clark (his first session with Clark and the only known versions of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Woody ‘n’ You” by the guitarist) have also been added as a bonus.
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, August 29, 1961.
