Grant Green Jr. ''Jungle Strut''

Grant Green Jr.

''Jungle Strut''

Source -

My Japanese limited edition reissue of 1997 album packaged in a miniature LP sleeve.

Grant Green, Jr. -- also a guitarist -- recorded an album for the Japanese market in 1997 that Grant Green, Sr. could very well have made: a fine chitlin-circuit set of soul-jazz populated mostly by tunes from the '60s ("Walk on By," "Green Onions" "When a Man Loves a Woman"). To his credit, Jr. doesn't sound exactly like Sr.; his harder tone, solid R&B-oriented comping, and repeated stabbing riffs place him closer to Joe "Boogaloo" Jones, or George Benson in a funky mood. Green often defers to his flamboyant alternating organists Reuben Wilson and Michael Torsone, and altoman Eddie Pazant delivers a typical (for the genre) mixture of bop and soulful grandstanding. The rhythm section is a tough, kicking combination of Bill Foster (bass) and Ernest Colon (drums) (CDUniverse)

Thanks for the comments, it`s still got Reuben Wilson and Eddie Pazant and it`s pretty rare.
