Sonny Rollins with Grant Green?  At the Casa Loma, Montreal?  From Coda, April/May 1964, as reprinted in The John Coltrane Reference, page 300:

"Sonny Rollins was due to open on the 25th (Feb 1964), but his plane got grounded by fog in Toronto...Sonny opened the following night with that fine new guitarist Grant Green along with Spanky DeBrest, bass and Roy McCurdy drums.  A week that compared with the Coltrane booking."

Would love to hear that... Any idea how long Grant played with Sonny?

I saw that gig.   Probably the first, and least favorite,  time I saw Sonny.  Can't remember why I didn't like it but he seemed to be struggling with the influence of Coltrane.  (At least that's what I remember but after all these years who knows-- I may just have been in a bad mood. )
