This oil painting of Grant Green is part of a series of works jazz and blues artists from the 1930's onward. Grant Green (June 6, 1935 St. Louis, Missouri – January 31, 1979; New York; was a jazz guitarist and composer. A severely underrated player during his lifetime, Grant Green is one of the great unsung heroes of jazz guitar ... Green's playing is immediately recognizable -- perhaps more than any other guitarist. Green's primary influences were saxophonists, particularly Charlie Parker, and his approach was therefore almost exclusively linear rather than chordal. The simplicity and immediacy of Green's playing, which tended to avoid chromaticism, derived from his early work playing rhythm and blues and, although at his best he achieved a synthesis of this style with bop, he was essentially a blues guitarist and returned almost exclusively to this style in his later career. I hope you enjoy viewing this work. Barbara McMahon
