Grant Green - Alive (1970)

Grant Green is a legendary Jazz guitarist. This Blue Note release is a personal favorite in a thorough repertoire from Grant Green. It is a live show in gritty Newark city at the Cliche Lounge. Green and the band are inarguably on their game this particular evening. The funk and R&B captured here on Alive provided the framework for the evolution of instrumentals in early Hip-Hop albums. This is the pinnacle of Green's funk style. Dig it.
