AllMusic Review by

This all-star date brings together three significant soul-jazz figures: organist Rueben Wilson, veteran session drummer Bernard Purdie, and guitarist Grant Green Jr. (the son of another famous jazz guitarist, Grant Green). Mixing the sound of classic soul-jazz --thanks in large part to Wilson's swirling Hammond B-3 sound--with a hard funk drive and a contemporary edge, GODFATHERS OF GROOVE links the past to the present across nine excellent tracks that will thrill old and new groove fans alike.
