Grant Green Jr. Band

As the son of legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green (1931-1979), Grant Green Jr. was exposed to exceptional musicianship right from the start. Growing up in Detroit, Grant enjoyed a constant parade of jazz greats streaming through his living room. His neighbors included Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight along with members of both the Four Tops and the Temptations. Miles Davis was known to join impromptu jam sessions in their home.

He’s toured the world in one band or another from an early age. A popular band he was part of for over a decade is the Godfathers of Groove with Bernard Purdie. (also called Masters of Groove.) Grant’s ability to blend funky grooves with the melodic soul-jazz and blues has made him a festival favorite. His live performances are heartfelt and crowd pleasing, delighting fans at events like the New Orleans JazzFest, Savannah Musicfest, High Sierra Fest (CA), Bear Creek (FL), and the Detroit Jazz Festival. He returned to the Dominican Republic Jan. ’15 for his second year as part of the ‘super-band” The Playa Allstars at Widespread’s Panic en la Playa with Ivan Neville, George Porter, Jr., Randall Bramblett, Col. Bruce Hampton. In March 2015 he will release a new, well anticipated CD featuring his Atlanta-based band, The Big Bam Boom.
