Smoldering Organ Trio On 180g Vinyl LP!
Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series!
In honor of Blue Note Records' 80th Anniversary, the legendary Jazz label is launching the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series. Distinct from the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, this 2nd series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features mid-priced 180g vinyl releases in standard packaging with albums spanning the many eras of the label's history presented by themes: Blue Note Debuts, Blue Grooves, Great Reid Miles Covers, Blue Note Live, and Blue Note Drummer Leaders.
Guitarist Grant Green's 1961 debut album Grant's First Stand found him at the helm of a smoldering organ trio with Baby Face Willette on Hammond B3 organ and Ben Dixon on drums. A soul jazz classic for the ages, it also signaled the start of a fruitful relationship between Green and Blue Note Records that produced 30 albums over the next 12 years that moved from soul jazz and hard bop into jazz funk and fusion. Green's bluesy guitar sound would also be heard on more than 30 Blue Note albums.
