First Session is an album by American jazz guitarist Grant Green featuring performances recorded in 1960 and 1961 but not released on the Blue Note label until 2001.[1] The album features the first recordings made by Green for Blue Note which were held back from release in favour of a later recording date which appeared as Grant's First Stand (1961). Green is supported by pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer ”Philly” Joe Jones. Also included on the album are two takes from a later 1961 session that feature pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Butch Warren and drummer Billy Higgins.
