Live gigs featuring Grant Green, Larry Young, and Elvin Jones?

12 posts in this topic

Gang -- does anyone know if the trio of Grant Green, Larry Young, and Elvin Jones ever played any live gigs anywhere? If yes, can you point to some specific documentation or provide any clues that might lead me to some? 

Thanks.

I always heard they did, perhaps there is mention in the Young Mosaic set. I certainly don't remember any specific dates but there are tools such as ripmjazz and newspapers.com that one can use.

In the Iron City discussion a couple of months ago, some clever sleuths were able to find lots of documentation of Grant Green gigs with either Young or Patton, but this was the post-Elvin era.

If a specific date is pinned down, the next question of course will be...

Per Bertrand's post, if anyone has the Larry Young set on Mosaic, if you could  look through the notes and see if there's a reference to the trio playing live that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm sure I've read in notes, something to the effect that 'Green, Young and Jones' performed gigs together when they were in the New York area at the same time. Can't recollect the exact source. My first guess would have been the Mosaic Larry Young booklet. Otherwise, Lonnie Smith has stated Green's working trio around the time of the Blue Note Green/Young/Jones sessions was Green/Young and Otis' Candy 'Finch. 

Edit - yep. Page 1 of the Larry Young Mosaic notes by Cuscuna.

"Larry, Grant and Elvin would work in the New York area whenever possible. Larry Coryell remembers moving from Washington state and running up to Harlem to hear them...."

There is more detailed recollections from Coryell in various sources including his Autobiography if I remember correctly.

Thanks for this. In Larry's autobiography, he recalls in detail hearing Green, Young, and Finch in Harlem but doesn't (as I recall) say he heard the trio with Elvin. I'll recheck this ...
