Grant Green: Idle Moments

By

Idle moments can so often be the most inspiring ones—the kind that are not about doing nothing, exactly, but rather leaving space for who-knows-what to happen. In the case of this session, what happened was a slight chart-reading mixup that had everyone taking solos twice as long as planned. For such a patient and dreamy piece, all the extra time to drift couldn't have been a happier accident.
