The Final Comedown was Blue Note?s first film soundtrack and is an excellent debut into the Blaxploitation soundtrack genre of the period. As Grant Green?s entry into this genre it does differ to a certain degree from his other works.

There are pensive mood pieces along with more funky percussive tunes. Like any film score, the moods shift from tense to tranquil, featuring staccato horn punches, dramatic tympani, bongo driven beats and wah wah guitar. Grant Green brings a deeper jazz feel to the tracks with in particular the title track being more akin to his other Blue Note material of the period.

Guitarist Grant Green is known for laid back non-chordal single note playing. He was underrated during his life, but is now seen as one of the greatest guitarists of his era. During the early 60?s, both his fluid, tasteful playing in organ/guitar/drum combos and his other dates for Blue Note established Green as a star. He was off the scene for a while in the mid-60?s, but came back strong in the late ?60?s and ?70?s when this album was recorded.
