About Grover Live

The godfather of today's urban contemporary jazz scene, Grover Washington, Jr., was one of the most popular and influential saxophonists of the '70s and '80s. And while he may have paved the way for such easy-listening artists as Kenny G, Najee, George Howard and Gerald Albright, none of those popular saxophonists play with the chops and sheer intensity that Grover demonstrated on the bandstand from night to night throughout his career, which spanned three decades. And as the newly discovered Grover Live demonstrates, the man was clearly on top of his game well in to the '90s. Recorded on June 7, 1997 at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Peekskill, New York, Grover Live, produced by Jason Miles (Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, Sting), captures the consummate pro in concert and at the peak of his powers, blowing with unbridled conviction and a sense of risk-taking on a collection of his tunes spanning three decades.

From familiar hits like 'Winelight' and 'Mr. Magic' to a medley of early numbers like 'Inner City Blues,' 'Black Frost' and 'Just the Two of Us' to more recent offerings like 'Mystical Force,' the hip-hop flavored 'Uptown' and a contemporary spin on the old school groover, 'Soulful Strut,' Grover and his crew--Adam Holzman and Donald Robinson on keyboards and synthesizers, Gerald Veasley on electric bass, Richard Lee on guitar, Pablo Batista on percussion and Steven Wolf on drums--stretch out in dynamic fashion on this exhilarating live CD...
