Grant Green • His Majesty King Funk

Review by Michael Erlewine
Don't be scared off by the His Majesty King Funk title; this is not Green's later commercial stuff. This is excellent Grant Green with Larry Young on organ, Harold Vick on sax, Ben Dixon on drums, and Candido Camero on conga -- essentially a classic four-piece. And this is soul-jazz with a deep groove. His Majesty King Funk is the last of five albums Green recorded with Young. Produced by Creed Taylor, it is the only album Green did for Verve and perhaps his last real jazz album before several years of inactivity, after which he became somewhat more commercial in his approach. The album includes the standard "That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)."

Grant Green - guitar
Harold Vick - tenor saxophone
Larry Young - organ
Ben Dixon - drums
Candido Camero - bongo, congas

"The Selma March" - 8:26
"Willow Weep for Me" - 10:01
