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.

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 ...
