From the blistering opener, "Miss Ann's Tempo," Green digs in and delivers some choice statements while Willette whoops up a sonic storm of his own. The session's two standards, "Lullaby of the Leaves" and "Tain't Nobody's Business if I Do," are stunning swingers that reach deep into the blues tradition that Green made such a part of his signature style. His own compositions, "Blues for Willarene," "Baby's Minor Lope," and the closing "A Wee Bit O' Green," reveal the guitarist's penchant for swinging grooves and tasty melodies from the start. In all, this is a remarkable debut that foreshadows Green's legendary career as one of the most influential guitarists in jazz.
