St. Louis guitarist Grant Green began performing professionally when he was twelve.

Influenced mainly by Charlie Christian, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young he made his first recordings with tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest before the 1961 release of his own debut as leader "Grant's First Stand."

Green's bluesy grove is immediately recognizable and he worked mainly with small groups including musicians McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, and Sonny Clark.

After spending much of 1978 hospitalized Grant returned to the road against medical advice.

While booked at George Benson's Breezin' Lounge in New York he collapsed in his car and died from a heart attack on January 31, 1979.
