Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Disposable music from an indisposable legend

"The two aspects of jazz I enjoy most are the complex
rhythms that it tends to offer as well as the interaction
between musicians and their instruments. Unfortunately little of
that exists on this recording. Although it may work for some listenters, I find electronic drum beats and a general lack of musical accompanyment a tragedy of modern music. I know, it's the music that tends to sell these days, but if it wasn't for Grover's sax playing, there would be little if any soul or swing on this recording. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy a few of the tracks: Village Groove, Headman's Haunt, and Mystical Force, but I need more than three tracks to induce me to queue up a cd for full listening. I fully understand that Grover has always been into funk and soul jazz, but considering the quality music he has made in the past, I'm surprised that toward the end of his career his music devolved into something one would hear in an elevator."

"Another masterpiece by Grover who never failed to please. His passing in December left a huge void and his talent will be hard to replace. Anyone who fails to love this album cant be a self respecting jazz fan! Of all his cd's this is my favourite and if your anything like me it should appeal to the hopeless romantics out there. As always the tracks are instantly recognisable as Grover's and are best played on a warm summer's evening, a bottle of chilled Chardonnay in hand and preferably a little moon & stars and that someone special."

"Smooth, beautiful playing, every bit as lovely as "Winelight", which was the first album of Grover Washington's I ever heard and the one that made me fall in love with his playing."
