Recorded on November 16, 1964, at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

During 1961-65, Grant Green was everywhere, recording one classic after another. He could play everything: his soulful sound and expertise with single-note lines and melodic style made him a perfect fit for bop jams, stirring bop sessions, free explorations, Latin music and Swing sets. Green added funk and fire to soul jazz combos, trading explosive statements with powerful organists.

On Street Of Dreams, he magically updates the classic soul Jazz style in a quartet with Larry Young, Bobby Hutcherson and Elvin Jones. The young all-stars all display highly individualized solo styles, filling the set with memorable surprises and plenty of heat. The four lengthy selections are highlighted by superb treatments of "Lazy Afternoon" and "I Wish You Love." Most of all, it is the interaction between the four unique giants that make Street Of Dreams one of the great recordings of the early 1960s.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI in Camarillo, CA. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
