Goins publishes research on Blue Note Records artist

Submitted by Wayne Goins

Wayne Goins, university distinguished professor of music, published an extensive research study in the internationally distributed audiophile magazine Positive Feedback titled "The Great Guitar of Grant Green, Part I," an article focused on the career of legendary jazz guitarist Grant Green.

More specifically, Goins chronicles the entire length of Green’s recorded output, from the earliest beginnings of his performances in St. Louis, Missouri, to the entire catalog of albums he recorded for the famed Blue Note Records label in New York City. In what represents a comprehensive series of in-depth articles, Goins offers both historical and theoretical analyses of the audio content in both vinyl and CD formats, as he releases each publication in chronological order.

Goins, who serves on the board of directors of the magazine, has published several articles as a contributing feature columnist. Goins regularly combines intense music research with in-depth details of his use of mono, stereo and high-end digital equipment for playback of his extensive music collection in 45s, LPs and CD format.
