2019 release. "... Grits, Beans and Greens ? made in 1969 just before Hayes' health declined, long-lost and now finally mastered and released on vinyl and CD ? captures his astonishing fluency as a tenor-sax improviser, and canny craftsmanship as a composer. Rugged modal themes unfold over hurtling bass-walks (from the excellent Ron Mathewson) that suggest Coltrane's Impressions or Giant Steps but with chirpy Latin-ballroom countermelodies. There are fast blues, and smoky ballads." --John Fordham, The Guardian
