Some scandalmongers have always seen Grant Green as some kind of “light” version of the untouchable Wes Montgomery. A very reductive description of this great guitarist, who may be less flamboyant and groundbreaking than his elder but is truly a virtuoso when it comes to smooth groove. During the 1960s, Green will pen with Blue Note, as a leader but also as a sideman, unique pieces with a blues soul. Jazz guitarists were rather rare at the time and the voice coming out of his ten fingers was rather original… Recorded on September 5, 1975 at the Oil Can Harry’s in Vancouver for CHQM-FM radio, Slick! introduces the American guitarist accompanied with his band based in Detroit composed of Emmanuel Riggins (father of drummer Karriem Riggins) on electric piano, Ronnie Ware on bass, Greg “Vibrations” Williams on drums and Gerald Izzard on percussion. A little more than three years before his sudden death following a heart attack at only 43 years old, the guitarist from Missouri is in his funkiest phase. For proof, the ultra groovy medley lasting more than 30 minutes including sections from Stanley Clarke’s Vulcan Princess, the Ohio Players’ Skin Tight, Bobby Womack’s Woman’s Gotta Have It, Stevie Wonder’s Boogie On Reggae Woman or the O’Jays’ For The Love Of Money. Grant Green is then untouchable on this ground of perfect balance between swing and funk. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Rudy Van Gelder, THE sound of jazz

Considered as the greatest inventor in the history of jazz music, Rudy Van Gelder was an artisan that worked with the greatest musicians in the post-war period for Blue Note, Impulse!, Prestige, CTI and Savoy.
