CD Reviews

I've listened to it 100 times

"and it's still one of my favorite CD's. I especially like I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU and OVERJOYED. My favorite Grover Washington, Jr. work is WINELIGHT, but this one is second in line. I was saddened by Washington's untimely death. He seemed like such a nice person and he was truly gifted by the gods. Enjoy!"

"A fine melot wine. A candlelight italian dinner. The sound of the wind softly gliding against the moonlight sky. Two loves sharing the aroma of romance over a specially prepared dinner; and the music in the background moves them to dance, not like before, but as a celebration---a homecomming for two drifting souls.

What is playing? All My Tomorrows by Grover Washington, Jr.

Firstly, I must say that this album shocked me. At a time when I was only into smooth jazz (and some Miles Davis), a store owner recommended this particular album to me. He said it would match my tastes in jazz (at that time, Gearld Albright, David Sandborn, Bob James, Kirk Whalum, etc). When I took this tape home, I just didn't get it!

Primary listening evaluations led me to categorize this as "The Cosby Show-type Jazz" (along the lines of Quincy Jones' The Ballad of Chet Kindaid) and that it was created for older minds. Now, 10 years later; I appreciate this music for what it is.

This album is a slow-romance masterpiece. All the tempos are slow, the musical timbre is soft, and the presetation is subtle and detailed. Grover quiets his horn (as a sidenote, read the linter notes as he discusses his embrechure lessons from Eddie Harris) and allows for extended breathing techniques in his music. The texture of the music is rippled and the overall presentation is excellent.

I think this album belongs in every romantic's collection. I keep this album at home and in the car (next to Anita Baker and Luther Vandross). It's a soft and slow drift from the noise of the day to a somber and seductive place of mind that only lover's know of.

If you have this album, also purchase:

Merry Go Round, Freddy Cole
When I Fall In Love, Nat "king" Cole
I Just Dropped By To Say Hello, Johnny Hartman
Johnny Hartman and John Coltrane
The Billie Holiday Songbook, Terence Blanchard and Janine Bryson
Aria, Grover Washington (with Terence Blanchard)


The music is subtley seductive; what can I say?
