Even serious devotees will agree this recording is decidedly uncharted territory in the discography of Grant Green. Bassist Ronnie Ware shines brightly throughout and keyboardist Emmanuel Riggins mirrors Green’s guitar riffs so closely on the keyboard that sometimes it feels as if there are two guitars playing at once. Vancouver DJ and the original producer of this recording, Gary Barclay, notes in his 1975 interview with Emmanuel Riggins, “You get a sound that, if I wasn’t listening attentively, I sometimes thought you were Grant Green! (Laughs) You’ve got the sound so close to that guitar. That they were almost interchangeable.”

Recorded less than four years before his untimely death at the young age of 43, Slick! – Live at Oil Can Harry’s has Green still playing familiar songs in non-traditional ways, pushing the limits of traditional jazz and stretching the form. Green continued to fuse a rock beat with jazz creating a heavier and heavier funk sound.
