4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

The prolific Green is joined by bassist Ben Tucker and drummer Dave Bailey for this 1961 classic. Green Street features the guitarist stretching out on three originals, and staples "’Round About Midnight" and "Alone Together."

With Tucker and Bailey hanging on every Green phrase and reacting immediately to his musical thoughts, the focus is almost entirely on the guitarist. Green comes up with consistently surprising and rewarding ideas, taking these songs on unexpected trips and creating music for the ages. Few other guitarists of the time could have excelled in this setting on the level of Green. Green Street is one of his most essential recordings.
