Grover Washington Jr.   <>  Winelight   
"Among the most beautiful jazz albums ever made"

With Winelight, Grover Washington, Jr. produced a magical collection of jazz and soul with a touch of pop. He set the standard for the smooth jazz genre - the band is tight, the solos terrific and the arrangements understated and tasteful. The 1980 double-Grammy award winning album was Washington's most successful album and remains one of the smooth jazz masterpieces.

Top to bottom Winelight is superb, masterfully recorded and perhaps best-known for the hit "Just the Two of Us" sung by Bill Withers, but it is the five instrumental tracks that find Grover Washington, Jr. (on soprano, alto, and tenor) really stretching out. He was joined by percussionist (and producer) Ralph MacDonald and also the incomparable Steve Gadd (drums) and Eric Gale (guitar).

Grover Washington, Jr., had long been one of the leaders in what could be called rhythm & jazz,
essentially R&B-influenced jazz. The music world lost a great musician when Grover Washington Jr. passed-away so suddenly.  Fortunately, he left so many classic albums to cherish and Winelight is one of those time-honored works that must be included in any worthy music collection.

"A timeless masterpiece from one of the smooth jazz pioneers!"
