  • Of all of Grant Green's late-period performances, LIVE AT THE LIGHTHOUSE was arguably the most magical. By 1972 Green was deep into his final funky period of performing extended James Brown-inflected pop material. Here, at the most famous of West Coast jazz venues, the music exploded off the stage for an appreciative audience. Backed by a large group that included Wilton Felder on electric bass, the burning saxophonist Claude Bartee, and female percussionist Bobbye Hall, Green was on fire, ripping out one blistering solo after another.
  • In his opening remarks, emcee Hank Stewart announces that they are there to "create love through the medium of music." This is a prophetic statement, as Green was clearly a master of expression through his instrument. Though he was often criticized for performing less-than-traditional material, Grant Green transcended style, producing highly musical performances out of works like the pop song "Betcha By Golly Wow." Also included are Donald Byrd's flowing "Fancy Free" and the fiery epic "Jan Jan." Next to being there on that magical occasion, this disc fully realizes for the listener Green performing at his best, even at a time when it seemed his best glory was behind him.
