Grover Live!

A new CD documenting the late great Saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. In a 1997 concert with his touring band.

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 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 Artsin 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 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.

To be released on G-Man Productions

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
