Excellent - but far from complete

"On August 14, 1985, a concert of GRP artists was held in the big room at the Record Plant in Los Angeles. It was recorded for both audio and video release. The lineup was Dave Grusin (keyboards), Lee Ritenour (guitar), Dianne Schuur (vocals), Dave Valentin (flute), Ivan Lins (keyboards, vocals), Larry Williams (keyboards, sax), Abraham Laboriel (bass), and Carlos Vega (drums). Vocalist Phil Perry was brought in to sing on Lee Ritenour's "Countdown" at the end of the show.
This single concert was released to the public in several variations - none of them complete. There was a CD called "GRP Live in Session" and a video called "GRP Live in Session", with identical covers but different tracks. Then there were two video releases under the names "GRP All-Stars Live from the Record Plant" and "Dave Grusin & Lee Ritenour Live at the Record Plant." These last two video programs are now available on a single DVD, which enables you to see the whole show (albeit in chopped up and resequenced form).
This CD (which was my first introduction to this amazing show) only features 7 tracks from the concert, and even they are edited down. Still, the quality of the musicianship plus the top-notch technology involved with the recording means this is one to both enjoy and to use for showing off your system's capabilities. Grab it if you can!"
