Rediscover a genius of jazz

Now in softcover! This heartfelt biography celebrates the life and music of unsung hero Grant Green, the late jazz guitar genius who played on nearly 100 albums from the early '60s to the late '70s, but narrowly missed celebrity. Today his music has inspired numerous acid-jazz and hip-hop recordings and his legend continues to grow. A straight-ahead jazzman turned funk wizard, you'll read in this Grant Green biography that he's best known for his rhythmic and driving tone as a session leader and sideman for Blue Note Records. The Grant Green biography paints a personal portrait of the artist's internal struggles through the eyes of his family, friends, and fellow musicians.
