Time and troubles seem to melt away during the fifteen enrapturing minutes of ‘Idle Moments’, the opening track of Grant Green’s sublime 1963 album of the same name. As the piece unhurriedly unfurls all the unique colours of the ensemble present themselves with Green’s soulful guitar joined by Duke Pearson’s elegant piano, Bobby Hutcherson’s crystalline vibraphone, Bob Cranshaw’s reassuring upright bass, Al Harewood’s subtle drums, and Joe Henderson’s magnificent tenor saxophone. The pace quickens for the rest of this tremendous set including the nimble Green original ‘Jean de Fleur,’ a bluesy take on John Lewis’ MJQ standard ‘Django’, and a driving performance of Pearson’s original ‘Nomad’.
