Grant Green - Alive!

Year : 1970
Label : Blue Note
Genre : Jazz
Style : Soul Jazz, Jazz Funk

Amazing live performance recorded at the Cliche Lounge in New Jersey by the emblematic jazz fusion guitarist. Grant Green continues his "funky" route, strongly influenced by James Brown, started from his previous album "Green Is Beautiful", with the same formation, namely, Idris Muhammad, Claude Bartee & Earl Neal Creque plus organist Ronnie Foster. Titles include crossover Jazz & powerful Soul grooves, the Funk classics "Let The Music Take Your Mind" & "Sookie, Sookie" (cover songs of Kool & the Gang and Don Covay), and the Lalo Schifrin's Down Here On The Ground sampled by ATCQ (Vibes And Stuff).
