Editorial Reviews

America's greatest R&B-funk and soul-jazz saxophonist, Grover Washington, Jr., (December 12, 1943-December 17, 1999) was one of the first musicians to successfully fuse R&B, pop, funk, blues, and jazz. "Grover Live" is a previously unreleased live recording.  Captured on June 7, 1997 in Peekskill, NY, this album reveals Washington and his famous backing band blowing the roof off the sold out 1,500-seat Paramount Center for the Performing Arts.

Hi everyone! We are really excited about all of the feedback from all media! This was a labor of love... 10+ years in the making. We had to edit the concert down which was really hard but we feel like we got the true essence of who my father was on stage. It was a TEAM effort! Much love and respect to everyone involved.
I love it! My daughters... Grover's grandchildren, go to sleep to this cd and love it as well. Thank you to all the fans who haven't forgotten great music and an even better man! Enjoy!
-Shana

What an amazing recording! It comes in a gorgeous collector's edition digipak, packed with liner notes and photographs. This is Grover in all his glory.

He plays with such splendid intensity, deep soul, funk & groove, and passion. He's a true genius at melody and improvisation. Superb audio quality, and a feast of his biggest hits played live. It's a lot of music, about 80 minutes - and conversation. To hear the warmth of Grover's voice makes this such a special experience.

Close your eyes and imagine you're in a concert hall with one of the greatest musicians of all time, backed by his talented touring band. Then you realize that Grover Lives On in all of us. Keep this spirit alive in the world. Turn your friends on to the magic. A Must have album! Long live Grover Washington Jr. in our hearts and on our stereo systems!

Thank you to his family and the producer Jason Miles for making this happen.

It's hard to believe that it's been over 10 years since Grover Washington, Jr.'s untimely death. I've been a fan of his since 1975 when GW blew the world away with the album "Mr. Magic". This was the first time that anyone had heard jazz played so funky that you could actually dance to it. GW was truly an innovator and the best saxophonist ever!

Thanks to his wife Christine Washington and Jason Miles, we are blessed to hear one of Grover's last live performances, finally released on CD. What better way to complete your Grover collection than with this treasure. Recorded in 1997 in Peekskill, NY, this CD contains many of your favorite Grover songs, including "Winelight", "Take Five", "Soulful Strut", "Let It Flow" and "Mr. Magic". He also performs a nice medley of other hits including "Black Frost", "Inner City Blues", "Strawberry Moon" and more.

The sound is crystal clear and Grover sounds as great live as he did on studio recordings. He makes the sax "sing" like no other artist can. He's backed by a tight rhythm section and a full orchestra. You'll feel like you were actually in the audience while listening to this. If you've been following his career and music since the beginning like I have, then you know that the music speaks for itself.

This may not be the last music we hear from Grover. According to the liner notes, Mrs. Washington states that "Grover left a treasure trove of recorded live concert dates on digital audio tape". So we can reasonably expect that more live music will be released on CD. Hopefully, we won't have to wait another ten years to hear it.

Hi Shana,my sisters X loved Grover and when i was around 10 years i heard your dad for the first time . It was the Mister Magic album and they said i was telling everyone thats what i wanted to be when i grew up ,a sax player . Later in school i joined the band and the band director talked my dad into getting me a clarinet , i hated it and gave it up .I hate they didn't buy me the alto sax i wanted. I recently bought the DTS CD Winelight and it is breathtaking ! I wish I'd gotten to see Grover live and he will always be my favorite sax player and the late Autrey Dewalt Jr.Walker is second. There will never be another Grover, I'm sure he's playing away and smiling down on us from Heaven . Thank you for putting this awesome disc together and hope maybe a Blu ray of the full show in the future maybe.

Also i got his disc Winelight in (DTS 5.1 CD) and it's breathtaking !!

Had to come back to say WOWWWW,Phenomenal,outstanding !!! By far his best live show I've ever heard,love hearing him tapping the keys and evening can hear his breathe. Would be nice to have the full cuts of the ones that had to be cut , Please Please Please do a Blu-Ray or DVD of the full show . Also what year was this ? Thanks again for sharing more of your dads awesome music,i'll treasure his music to the end !

I saw Grover at his last appearance at the Playboy Jazz Festival. This brings me right back to that day.

Excellent production and sound quality. Sure, there's some banter with the audience and band - it's live! You want just the music, buy the studio albums... All the sidemen get a chance to stretch out but Grover is the star here.

It could be longer, but I could listen to Grover all night. You have to draw the line somewhere. The live renditions are spontaneous enough to let you know it's really live, without self-indulgent solos that lose track of the theme.

If you've seen Grover live or wish you could have - this is for you.
