BORN TO BE BLUE (180G LP)
12" Vinyl D
A Blue Note Tone Poet reissue - remastered from the original tapes, audiophile pressing on 180 gram vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.
Grant Green’s 1962 album Born To Be Blue featuring Ike Quebec is often thought of as the sister album to Quebec’s classic Blue and Sentimental, which was recorded for Blue Note just 3 months prior and also showcased the deep chemistry between the soulful guitarist and tenor saxophonist. Quebec’s deep, soul-drenched tenor sound matches beautifully with hard bop masters Green and pianist Sonny Clark, along with the tried-and-true rhythm section team of Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on this sublime set of standards.
