|Bennie Green chronology|
The 45 Session is an album by American trombonist Bennie Green recorded in 1958 but first released on the Japanese Blue Note label in 1975 as Minor Revelation. The tracks were originally intended for release as 45 rpm singles.
The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "it's a bit frustrating to hear the songs in truncated form, but since that's the only way they exist, fans should cherish what we do have. And this is music to cherish. Green's Blue Note recordings are consistently fun, and this is no exception. Each song swings with energy, offering each instrumentalist a chance to shine... the music is as appealing today as when it was recorded".
