Grant Green & Bobby Hutcherson : Idle Moments

Grant Green & Bobby Hutcherson : Idle Moments

  • $10.98


Time is suspended on these four haunting, extended tunes by this brilliant guitarist with the aid of an all-star cast. Unique in Green's discography for its relaxed, lengthy performances and almost dream-like lyricism, this Blue Note classic could well be called "Ballads for the Ages."
The alluring title track alone makes this CD a must-have. A 15-minute dreamscape laid down by pianist Duke Pearson, the song features enchanting solos by tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson. Guitarist Grant Green's single-note melody heightens the song's suspense. Grant's original "Jean de Fleur" finds the ensemble in brisker tempo, while their cover of John Lewis's "Django" exudes the spine-tingling coolness of Lewis's brand of bop. --John Murph
