Grant Green 'Sunday Mornin'- Authentic Analog Audiophile Reissue. Recorded By Rudy Van Gelder (one of his finest sessions). Listen Here
Upon hearing the Sunday Mornin’ analog tapes used for cutting this release, mastering engineer Kevin Gray gleefully proclaimed, “Rudy’s sound doesn’t get any better than this, it really doesn’t”! He would know, Kevin has cut more Blue Note lacquers than anybody in the world.
Grant was seemingly always ahead. He composed the lead off song, “Freedom March” in 1961... 2+ years before what most consider the start of the modern day Civil Rights Movement. Jazz musicians, certainly not Grant Green, seldom receive the credit they deserved for their profound impact on the Civil Rights movement. Another Green original, the title cut, “Sunday Mornin” is influenced by gospels but in a more spiritual, positive, happy way. Same goes for the cover of “God Bless The Child... aching and beautiful. The record closes with a cover of the Miles Davis’ standard, “So What”... at the time barely a year old but Grant’s intuition told him the tune would become a vital piece of jazz history.
Originally recorded in 1961 and released in 1962, Slow Down Sounds is proud to present this Authentic Analog Audiophile reissue pressing!
