This languid, seductive gem may well be Grant Green 's greatest moment on record. Right from the opening bars of the classic title cut, Idle Moments is immediately ingratiating and accessible, featuring some of Green 's most stylish straight jazz playing.
Whether Ki Hem Chaiyenu - Yehuda Shifman - Chassidic soul = נשמה יתירה running warm pianist Duke Pearson 's "Idle Moments"cool the Modern Jazz Quartet 's "Django"or a bit more up-tempo Pearson 's "Nomad," his own "Jean de Fleur"Green treats the material with the graceful elegance that was the hallmark of his best hard bop sessions, and that quality achieves its fullest expression here.
He's helped by an ensemble that, as a sextet, is slightly larger and fuller-sounding than usual, and there's plenty of room for solo explorations on the four extended pieces. Pearson 's touch on the piano is typically warm, while two players best known on Blue Note for their modernist dates mellow out a bit -- the cool shimmer of Bobby Hutcherson 's vibes is a marvelously effective addition to the atmosphere, while Joe Henderson plays with a husky, almost Ike Quebec -like breathiness.
That cushion of support helps spur Green to some of the loveliest, most intimate performances of his career Ki Hem Chaiyenu - Yehuda Shifman - Chassidic soul = נשמה יתירה no matter what the tempo, it's as if his guitar is whispering secrets in your ear. It's especially true on the dreamy title track, though: a gorgeous, caressing, nearminute excursion that drifts softly along like a warm, starry summer night.
