In a career spanning more than 50 years, London-based bass player David Green has worked and recorded with numerous groups in all styles of jazz. His Jimmy Blanton inspired playing has accompanied names such as Don Rendell Quintet, Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter, Sonny Rollins and Nikki Iles.

Guitarist Rob Luft originally formed his Grant Green tribute project, The Nomads, back in 2017, when East London music venue Brilliant Corners asked him to reinterpret Green’s seminal album Idle Moments. Since then, Luft has plundered the legendary guitarist’s wide-ranging Blue Note discography & handpicked a selection of his favourite compositions  specifically for this special edition of Jazz in the Round.
