Description

'Slick! - Live at Oil Can Harry's' is a never-before-released recording from jazz guitar icon Grant Green captured live on September 5, 1975 at Oil Can Harry's, a popular club in Vancouver, BC Canada.

Featuring a primarily Detroit-based band with Emmanuel Riggins (father of drummer Karriem Riggins) on electric piano, Ronnie Ware on bass, drummer Greg "Vibrations" Williams (Jack McDuff, Lou Donaldson) and Gerald Izzard on percussion, 'Slick!'s centerpiece is the 30-plus minute funk exploration medley of Stanley Clarke's "Vulcan Princess," "Skin Tight" by the Ohio Players, Bobby Womack's "Woman's Gotta Have It," "Boogie On Reggae Woman" by Stevie Wonder and "For the Love of Money" by The O'Jays.

This recording was originally broadcast on CHQM-FM and has been transferred from the original 10" reels to reveal a sterling sonic experience. Aside from Resonance's companion piece, Funk in France, being released simultaneously with this recording, this is only the 4th live recording released of the under-appreciated jazz guitar hero. Captured 3 years after the classic Live at the Lighthouse album released on Blue Note in 1972, this also marks the latest known official live Grant Green recording available.

Personnel: Grant Green (guitar), Emmanuel Riggins (electric piano), Ronnie Ware (bass), Greg "Vibrations" Williams (drums), Gerald Izzard (percussion)
