    Green Street

    Cut At 33 1/3 RPM By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Rudy Van Gelder Blue Note Master Tapes


    Pressed On 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl LP By RTI


    Top Quality Gatefold Packaging With Laminated Covers & High Quality Session Photos


    As the most prolific guitarist on Blue Note's roster, Grant Green was very busy during 1960-65, appearing in all types of settings with his fellow all-stars. However Green Street is quite unique for it showcases Green in a trio with bassist Ben Tucker and drummer Dave Bailey. Because Green rarely played chords, instead concentrating on single-note lines, hearing him in this sparse setting is similar to hearing a brilliant tenor-saxophonist such as Sonny Rollins in a piano less trio. Recorded April 1, 1961, Green Street features the guitarist stretching out on three originals, Round 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. Grant Green comes up with consistently surprising and rewarding ideas, taking these songs on unexpected trips and creating music for the ages. Few other guitarists or saxophonists of the time could have excelled in this setting on the level of Green. Heard in brilliant sound, Green Street is one of the most essential recordings of Grant Green.

    Cut At 33 1/3 RPM By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Rudy Van Gelder Blue Note Master Tapes


    Pressed On 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl LP By RTI


    Top Quality Gatefold Packaging With Laminated Covers & High Quality Session Photos


    During the first half of the 1960s, Grant Green was the house guitarist at Blue Note. His single-note lines had the power of a saxophonist, he displayed his own brand of soul, and he was so versatile that he was a perfect fit with soulful organ combos, post bop groups and all-star straight-ahead bands, even recording Latin music, spirituals and a Western-themed album. For 1964's Matador, Green showed a lot of courage, performing My Favorite Things in a quartet with McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones. Any other guitarist would sound foolhardy in that setting, but Green came up with his own ideas, creating a different spin on John Coltrane's trademark song. It is proof that on the guitar, Green was on the level of a McCoy Tyner and an Elvin Jones on their instruments. He was an innovator who blazed his own path, created music that had never been heard before, and always remained impossible to pin down as playing in only one style. Matador, which features Grant Green with his peers, is one of his most vital and timeless recordings.

    Workout

    During his stint with Miles Davis, Hank Mobley's four Blue Note  sessions with band mates Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers are considered his finest and most lyrical work. One listen to Workout, and you'll understand why. This 1961 masterwork also features guitarist Grant Green and drummer Philly Joe Jones, who, along with the tenor saxophonist, weave what can truly be called hard-bop magic. Listeners will be hard-pressed to find a more illustrative example of musical finesse, creativity, and swing.



    Part of Analogue Productions' incredible Blue Note reissue series, this pressing claims mastering from the original master tapes and cuttingat 45RPM by the infallible team of Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, which did the deed at Acoustech. Add in amazingly clean 180g vinyl pressed at RTI, numbered and limited quantities, and gorgeous reproduction of the cover art--itself a classic--and you have a can't-miss jazz classic made even better. And yes, this is the same process and personnel Analogue Productions used on its critically acclaimed Fantasy Jazz reissue series, so you know the quality is top-notch.

    Blue & Sentimental

    Ike Quebec's timeless, big-toned tenor was a frequent visitor to Rudy Van Gelder's studio in the early sixties. But this album from December 1961 with spare, soulful backing from Grant Green, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones is his masterpiece. The leaner setting works perfectly, evoking an aura of relaxation and monumentality, with the deepest blue of accents.

    Pressed On 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl LP By RTI


    Top Quality Gatefold Packaging With Laminated Covers & High Quality Session Photos


    Ike Quebec was perhaps the least likely musician to be leading albums for Blue Note in the early 1960s for he was a big-toned swing stylist rather than a hard bop or soul jazz player. But Quebec, a superb musician who was making a major comeback, was one of the most important figures in the entire history of Blue Note. He was the one who introduced Alfred Lion to bebop in the mid-1940s (including Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell) which entirely changed the course of Blue Note. Quebec, who gained some fame as a member of the Cab Calloway Orchestra, was a member of the Blue Note family back in the mid-1940s, having a hit with his recording of "Blue Harlem." After Quebec introduced Alfred Lion to the new music, he worked as an A&R man for Blue Note. Inactive during much of the 1950s, Quebec emerged in 1960 in prime form, recording several gems for Blue Note including Blue and Sentimental, his definitive album. Equally skilled on intimate ballads and uptempo romps, Quebec displays his mastery of the tenor and his huge sound throughout this set. Joined by a pianoless quartet that includes Grant Green, Quebec makes every breath and sound count, playing seductive lines on the ballads and swinging forcefully on the hotter numbers. He only lived until 1963 (passing away when he was just 44), but, as Blue And Sentimental shows, Ike Quebec saved the very best for his later period, creating a masterpiece.

    Remastered And Reissued As Part Of The Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign


    In a word association game, the name "Hank Mobley" will often generate "Blue Note" and vice versa. While Mobley had a musical life beyond the Blue Note label including associations with Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis (the 1961 Quintet), it is for his Blue Note recordings that he rightfully most remembered. Mobley led 25 albums for Blue Note and appeared on over 30 others as a sideman. His consistency resulted in all of those recordings being recommended to hard bop collectors.


    Mobley's mastery of the style, his attractive tone, and his skill at writing songs that inspire memorable solos made him a perfect representative of the Blue Note sound. Even with his large number of great recordings, Workout is something special and a real standout. Joined by Grant Green, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, Mobley creates brilliant statements on four of his best originals (including the soulful "Uh Huh" and "Greasin' Easy"), "The Best Things In Life Are Free" and "Three Coins In A Fountain." The passion in Mobley's playing is exciting and will surprise many. He takes wild chances that challenge the other all-stars, and he plays with a constant stream of creative ideas. Even collectors who own a dozen other Hank Mobley albums will have to get this version of Workout which, with its superb remastering, has never sounded better.

    Street Of Dreams

    Remastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman from the Original Rudy Van Gelder Blue Note Master Tapes


    The Definitive 45RPM Blue Note Reissue Series!


    From 1961-65, Grant Green was everywhere, recording one classic after another. He could play everything: his soulful sound and expertise with single-note lines and melodic style made him a perfect fit for bop jams, stirring bop sessions, free explorations, Latin music and Swing sets. Green added funk and fire to soul jazz combos, trading explosive statements with powerful organists. On Street Of Dreams, he magically updates the classic soul Jazz style in a quartet with Larry Young, Bobby Hutcherson and Elvin Jones. The young all-stars all display highly individualized solo styles, filling the set with memorable surprises and plenty of heat. The four lengthy selections are highlighted by superb treatments of "Lazy Afternoon" and "I Wish You Love." Most of all, it is the interaction between the four unique giants that makes Street Of Dreams one of the great recordings of the early 1960s.

    Blue Note Reissue


    As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their handsBack home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent meI hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008


    Time is suspended on these haunting, extended tunes by this brilliant guitarist with the aid of an all-star cast. Unique in Green's discography for its relaxed, lengthy performances and almost dream-like lyricism, this Blue Note classic could well be called Ballads for the Ages.

    Green Street

    As a trio, this edition of guitarist Grant Green's many ensembles has to rank with the best he had ever fronted. Recorded on April Fool's Day of 1961, the band and music are no joke, as bassist Ben Tucker and drummer Dave Bailey understand in the most innate sense how to support Green, lay back when needed, or strut their own stuff when called upon. Still emerging as an individualist, Green takes further steps ahead, without a pianist, saxophonist, or -- most importantly -- an organist. His willpower drives this music forward in a refined approach that definitely marks him as a distinctive, immediately recognizable player. It is also a session done in a period when Green was reeling in popular demand, as this remarkably is one of six recordings he cut for Blue Note as a leader in 1961, not to mention other projects as a sideman.

    The Latin Bit (Awaiting Repress)

    Grant Green, being known mainly as a soul-jazz guitarist, eventually gravitated into the popular boogaloo sound, a derivation of Latin music. The Latin Bit is the natural bridge to that next phase, though a bit premature for most in 1961-1963, even relative to the subsequent bossa nova craze.

    Alive!

    Alive! is the hardest funk LP Grant Green recorded during the later phase of his career, capturing a storming gig at Newark's ClichÉ Lounge. The sweaty club atmosphere adds something to the music that's difficult to pin down, yet unmistakably present -- a certain organic quality that isn't as noticeable on Green's studio albums of the time. Moreover, Green sounds more like the captain of his ship, with greater assurance in his musical direction and more strut on the R&B material.

    The Final Comedown (Pure Pleasure)

    Guitarist Grant Green is known for laid back non-chordal single note playing. He was underrated during his life, but is now seen as one of the greatest guitarists of his era. During the early 60's, both his fluid, tasteful playing in organ/guitar/drum combos and his other dates for Blue Note established Green as a star. He was off the scene for a while in the mid-60's, but came back strong in the late '60's and '70's when this album was recorded.



    The Final Comedown was Blue Note's first film soundtrack and is an excellent debut into the Blaxploitation soundtrack genre of the period. As Grant Green's entry into this blaxploitation genre it does differ to a certain degree from his other works. There are pensive mood pieces along with more funky percussive tunes. Like any film score, the moods shift from tense to tranquil, featuring staccato horn punches, dramatic tympani, bongo driven beats and wah wah guitar. Grant Green brings a deeper jazz feel to the tracks with in particular the title track being more akin to his other Blue Note material of the period.



    Musicians:



    • Grant Green (guitar)

    • Wade Marcus (composer, conductor)

    • Richard Tee (piano, organ)

    • Irving Markowitz, Marvin Stamm (trumpet, fluegel horn)

    • Phil Bodner (flute, piccolo, alto saxophone, oboe)

    • Harold Vick (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone)

    • Gordon Edwards (electric bass)

    • Grady Tate (drums)

    • Ralph MacDonald (conga, bongo)






    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Gag A Maggot

    Back in Print Since 1973 on Green Vinyl


    Another Southern Soul rarity re-released for the first time on vinyl since its original release in 1973! This album is so funky that it'll gag a maggott and drown a drop. Due to the fact that a maggott is the funkiest thing on earth; if this LP can make him gag which it already has, no telling what it'll do to your funny ass ... Swamp Dogg Swamp Dogg's Gag A Maggott was recorded in 1973 at TK in Miami with an all-star cast. The song Choking To Death (From The Ties That Bind) was recorded by Canned Heat in 1974. Thematically, this seems to be a fairly conventional soul LP -- great cover of In the Midnight Hour and lots of love and money in the lyrics. Granted, Wife Sitter is as nasty as Jody songs get, mostly because Dogg plays the cuckold, making Jody with such relish. And to call your sweeest love song I CouldnÍt Pay for What I Got Last Night, is to combine the two themes more intimately than most soul men consider necessary. Nor do most soul men drive so hard -- Ivan Olander's drums, Little Beaver's guitar, even the horns of the Swamp Dogg Band maintain a fierce momentum that's not conventional at all.

    Rusty Bryant Returns

    Rusty Bryant, a veteran R&B tenor player, was somewhat forgotten at the time of his debut Prestige album, but due to the commercial success of this recording, Bryant would record seven more sessions for Prestige during the next five years. Actually, this date is a bit surprising, with Bryant sticking exclusively to alto and sometimes using an electrified model similar to what Lou Donaldson was playing at the time. The music (mostly blues-oriented originals) is enjoyable, with plenty of boogaloos and soulful vamps. In addition to Bryant, the main soloists are guitarist Grant Green, in excellent form, and organist Sonny Phillips.

    Solid

    Solid is a companion piece to the Grant Green classic Matador, recorded about a month later with the same rhythm section, and also not issued until 1979. Green is once again accompanied by the Coltrane supporting team of pianist McCoy Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones, plus bassist Bob Cranshaw; this time, however, Green is also joined on the front line by James Spaulding on alto sax and Joe Henderson on tenor. Both saxophonists really seem to light a fire under the proceedings, for in comparison with the relatively subdued Matador, Solid is a bright, hard-charging affair. There's a little modal jazz, but Solid's repertoire is chiefly complex hard bop, full of challenging twists and turns that the players burn through with enthusiasm. Green didn't tackle this kind of material -- or play with this kind of group -- very often, and it's a treat to hear him do so on both counts. The compositions -- highlighted by Duke Pearson's Minor League, Henderson's The Kicker, and a storming, ten-minute exploration of George Russell's Ezz-Thetic -- provoke some intricate improvisations from Green, and his perfectly controlled soloing is an interesting contrast with the passionate Spaulding and Henderson. Tyner and Jones are once again telepathic in their support, elevating the whole package to one of Green's strongest jazz outings and a unique standout in his catalog.
