Some are not up to the level of the label's best output, but this outing is a definite exception. Guitarist Grant Green is heard in prime form in a sparse trio with bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Al Harewood. Because Green rarely ever played chords, sticking to single-note lines, hearing him in this setting is similar to hearing a tenor in a pianoless trio

Standards" is my first listen to Grant Green, and based on this album I will certainly do some further exploration into this unique, somewhat tragic artist. His bright, single-string, reverb-drenched musings of standards by Gershwin, Porter, et al, are strangely compelling. With very little chord-playing, Green's string work sounds like doodling at first, but then slowly he draws you in, and you realize that Green was capable of deep and utterly unique interpretations.

Solid is an album by American jazz guitarist Grant Green featuring performances recorded in 1964 but not released on the Blue Note label until 1979. There's a little modal jazz, but Solid's repertoire is chiefly complex hard bop, full of challenging twists and turns that the players burn through with enthusiasm.
