Grant Green was, along with Wes Montgomery, the top new jazz guitarist to become prominent in the early 1960s. Due to his single-note style (Green rarely ever played a chord) and his ability to create fast lines on the spot, Green was in some ways the Charlie Parker of the guitar. He gained experience playing in St. Louis in the 1950s including with Jimmy Forrest, Harry "Sweets" Edison and Lou Donaldson, moved to New York, and immediately became Blue Note's house guitarist. While the other musicians are inspired and in top form, Idle Moments is particularly notable as the height of Grant Green's musical genius.
