• Recorded at New York’s Paramount Center for the Arts in 1997, Grover Live functions beautifully as a tribute to the late musician and his legacy – a gleeful romp through his best-loved songs and a warm, inviting look at the man in action • This 80 minute set showcases Washington at his peak, with songs including Winelight, Soulful Strut, Let It Flow and his trademark Mr. Magic. The concert also features an eight-song medley, including Just the Two of Us and Jamaica • In addition, there are extensive liner notes by Grammy-winning keyboardist/producer Jason Miles which tell the story behind the discovery of the DAT tapes of this show and the labour-intensive process of restoring them • Grover Live is a glimpse of the artist at his best, playing his heart out for a small crowd that continues to grow One of the most popular saxophonists of all time, Grover Washington, Jr. was long the pacesetter in his field. His roots were in R&B and soul-jazz organ combos, but he also fared very well on the infrequent occasions when he played straight-ahead jazz. A highly influential player, Washington pushed himself with the spontaneity and risk-taking of a masterful jazz musician.
