Grant Green 
DOL 1054HG
Although Grant Green provided his share of groove-oriented soul-jazz and modal post-bop, his roots were hard bop and it is in a bop-oriented setting that the guitarist excels on this five-star album. Green is joined by Tenor titan Ike Quebec, Pianist Sonny Clark, Bassist Sam Jones and Drummer Louis Hayes. It's interesting to hear Quebec playing bop, for his big, breathy tone was right out of swing and was greatly influenced by Hawkins and Webster. Although Quebec and Green had very different musical backgrounds, they clearly enjoyed a strong rapport on the uptempo selectionsw as well as ballads. Contains 2 bonus tracks not found on the original LP. 

Tracks are;
Someday My Prince Will Come
If I Should Lose You
Back in Your Own Backyard
Outer Space **
Born to Be Blue
My One and Only Love
Count Every Star 
Cool Blues **

** = bonus tracks
