"The apple didn't fall far from the tree. The son of the legendary Grant Green is following the footsteps of his father, mastering the guitar and taking it to a higher level. One of the most exciting showmen in the blues/ funk circuit." -- New York Times
As son of the legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green, young Grant Jr. was exposed to exceptional musicianship and superb guitar playing right out of the womb. At the tender age of 5, with hands barely big enough to grasp the instrument, Grant Jr. played his first chords.
The Conservatory that Grant Jr. attended was simply the enviroment in which he lived; music surrounded him. He grew up in the Palmer Woods section of Detroit during the heyday of Motown and the Detroit Jazz scene. His Neighbors included Marvin Gaye, Stevie Woader, Gladys Night; along with members of both the Four Tops and Temptations.Practicing along side neighborhood pal Earl Klugh at his home, Grant Jr. enjoyed a constant parade of jazz greats streaming through his living room.
As his father and friends, like the great Mile Davis, made an impromtu jam session, the young Mr Green listened and learned. Today, you can hear all of these influences in Grant Jr.'s unique brand of blues, funk and R & B. Grant's style blends his technical mastery with heartfelt soul. It is this combination that sets Grant apart from the pack
