Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Grant Green's 1962 album "Born To Be Blue" featuring Ike Quebec is often considered the sister album to Quebec's classic "Blue and Sentimental." Recorded for Blue Note just three months prior, it showcases the deep chemistry between the soulful guitarist and tenor saxophonist. Quebec's soul-drenched tenor sound harmonizes beautifully with hard bop masters Green and pianist Sonny Clark, supported by the reliable rhythm section of Sam Jones and Louis Hayes.
