Label: Blue Note

Reissued 2019, originally released 1961

Had organist Baby Face Willette stayed in New York and on track, Grant Green, Willette, and Ben Dixon would have become one of the premier organ trios in jazz. From the first note of "Miss Ann's Tempo, " they establish a groove, and swing like hell through two standards and four originals. This may have been Grant Green's debut album, but all three of these musicians share equal responsibility in this magnificent January 28, 1961 date, remastered by original recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder from the original analog masters.

  1. Miss Ann's Tempo
  2. Lullaby Of The Leaves
  3. Blues For Willarene
  4. Baby's Minor Lope
