  • I like him better than his brother, but I think Grant Green's the one that for the most part makes Work Song such a great record.
  • Recommend the album You, Baby.
  • Nat was great trumpet player that I met and became a casual friend while he was playing with small groups at the HURRICANE night club and fine restaurant at Pasa Grille Beach,Fl. He also did a couple open air shows in his late home town of Lakeland,Fl. He was very courteous and considerate as well as a super trumpeter.
