All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP of Grant Green's Born To Be Blue Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Kevin Gray & Pressed at RTI: Reference-Caliber Blue Note Reissue Helmed by Music Matters' Joe Harley

Prolific guitarist Grant Green and tenor saxophonist Ike Quebec recorded very few sessions together and undoubtedly one of the best is contained on the Blue Note gem Born To Be Blue, captured in 1961-1962 but not released until 1985. Green, Quebec and pianist Sonny Clark were three musicians with much in common. They were all simple, direct players with strong melodic approaches and much rhythmic drive, as evidenced on this album. The material on Born To Be Blue consists entirely of standards including two of the finer ballads played by jazz musicians and an unlikely piece from the soundtrack of an animated fairy tale. There's not a wasted note found throughout.
