Goin' West has a slow ramblin' blues feel to it. Funky soul jazz master Grant Green has infused some down home soul groove into some classic cowboy tunes. Who would have thought you could make "On Top of old smokey" hip and cool, but Green found a way. Yes this is the "on top of old smokey, all covered with sorrow, I met my sweet " song. Joining Green on this album is a stellar group of blue note artists. Herbie Hancock plays piano, Billy Higgins plays the drums, and Reggie Workman plays bass. Alfred Lion frequently recorded Green in marketable sessions like "The Latin Bit" and "Feelin' the Spirit," unfortunately to often mixed results in my opinion.

Grant Green: Goin' West by Colin Fleming, published on July 12, 2004. to Idle Moments -or, as they could be co-billed, the infallible Grant Green recordings as a leader. While The Latin Bit focused on samba styles and Feelin' the Spirit drew from the old Southern hymnals, Goin' West, though nominally a country and western recording, moves us into the realm of folk music-bluegrass folk music and clippity-clappity cowboy tunes- not the stuff of the Bear Family Bonanza box set, mind, but not altogether dissimilar in spirit
