Grits Ain’t Groceries

Grits Ain’t Groceries

I have a lot of different favorite songs, the ones I break out and play. “Grits Ain’t Groceries (All Around the World)” as performed by Little Milton is not only a favorite song, but it inspires me. The lyrics flow and employ a wit and a wink. The arrangement pumps along with the horns playing these amazing lines. One, I wish I knew how to write horn charts, and, two, I wish I could write horn charts like this. The version in the video is a transcendent performance with Little Milton and Bonnie Raitt trading verses on the Conan O’Brien Show. Turn it up and enjoy.
