Love On A Two Way Street - Grant Green - Visions (Vinyl, LP, Album)

Very glad to get this one on CD finally. I bought the vinyl LP version back in the early '70s and listened too it frequently for many years. The tunes are generally shorter than most of his other work but still have Grant's cool improvising and unique phrasing of the melody lines/5(12).

out of 5 stars Great Record! Published on January 8, by SHAWN. Right from the opening track, the remake of Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is" you're in for a treat! If you love to Step as they do in Chicago, this opening track is it!!!! The rest of the tracks are done in typical Grant Green fashion, his phrasing and 5/5(1).

Grant Green's early-'70s recordings for Blue Note are continually attacked by jazz critics for being slick, overly commercial sessions that leaned closer to contemporary pop and R&B than hard bop or soul 's no denying that Green, like many of his Blue Note contemporaries, did choose a commercial path in the early '70s, but there were some virtues to these records, and Visions in.

A wicked late Blue Note album from Grant Green – quite different than his smaller combo work from the early years, and done with some great larger arrangements that feature some ultra-hip vibes from the legendary Billy Wooten! Wooten's as great here as on his famous work with the Ninteenth Whole, and his vibes bring a nice edge to the record – ringing out in bold chromatic tones.

A fantastically funky album with great signature Grant Green soloing. Confident funk licks and improvisation, completely owning his instrument, swirling around and funking up soul, rock, and classical staples. In a pleasant surprise, Chuck Rainey is on bass thumping it out with drummer Idris Muhammad.
