Excellent performances and great arrangements of some of Grovers classics.
Harry Daniels
Jazz, smooth jazz, rock, r&b, you name it, but I can undoubtly say this is by far the best crafted rendition of a great one like Grover that I've ever heard.
Charlie Trece
Next, Regina Belle brings her impressive style to 'Just The Two Of Us', and after hearing the song, you are left wanting MORE 'jazz' from the song stylist!!

Arguably, only David Sanborn has had as much influence on the current crop of smooth-jazz sax stars as Grover Washington Jr., and on this tribute album, we get ample proof of Washington's impact.

It's a testament to his talent that Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, and Everette Harp, playing three different horns--alto, soprano, and tenor, respectively--all sound exactly like the G-Man.

His sway over the three younger players is so dominant on many of their own recordings, particularly Albright's, that the licks that are nods to Washington are indistinguishable from the originals.

All of the instrumental tracks on this 14-song set play like Grover Washington Jr.'s greatest hits, with outstanding arrangements by the producer, keyboardist Jason Miles.

On a couple of numbers, the arrangements are stronger than the performances.

Tracks that work best are Regina Belle, Steve Cole, and George Duke doing "Just the Two of Us"; Herbie Mann working out on "Mister Magic"; and the Brecker Brothers teaming up with Joe Sample and Joey DeFrancesco on "Loran's Dance."

Ronnie Laws and Richard Elliot, two players not influenced by Washington, also offer very interesting performances

Funny thing. I was reading all the reviews and one can hardly see among all the comments the name of Jason Miles. True, this is a tribute to Grover Washington Jr. "The Father of Smooth Jazz", but let's give credit where is due. Jason Miles, a great keyboardist and arranger himself, managed to glue this new project with an impecable sense of musicianship. It's not the first time he pays homage to great musicians (Miles Davis, Weather Report and Marvin Gaye are also awesome renditions) and it should be easy to say that he couldn't go wrong with the personnel available for this work. Well, I've heard quite a few tributes. Jazz, smooth jazz, rock, r&b, you name it, but I can undoubtly say this is by far the best crafted rendition of a great one like Grover that I've ever heard. From the songs to the musicians chosen to perform them, from the arragements to the solos, Jason Miles did one heck of a job. Geral Albright shines on his cover of "Winelight" so do Dave Koz and Everette Harp and as one reviewer wrote; they sound exactly like Grover, proving once again the legacy of his unique talent. "Just the two of us" put together an awesome perfomance by Regina Belle and George Duke as well as flutist Herbie Mann in Grover's trademak "Mr. Magic". There are so many great artists in this album (Joe Sample, Steve Cole, Joey DiFrancesco, Richard Elliot, The Brecker Brothers and the list go on) and they are so perfectly matched by Miles that one can only say; Grover would love to hear "To Grover, with love".

Friends and acquaintances, if asked, would more than likely consider me to be a 'card carrying cynic' ( I much prefer the term realist! ). And when it comes to purchasing any music, to add to my ever growing collection, I may tend to be overly cautious. But having fallen victim to many a recording lable's marketing/pr depts. enticing come-on's I find I tend to look long and hard before I take the proverbial leap in handing over my hard-earned dollar for just any piece of music that might look promising. 'Once bitten twice shy!' And when it comes to 'Tribute' discs then my normally subdued internal alarms tend to blare loudly, secure in the knowledge that many of these CD's are much more concerned with seperating you from your money as opposed to actually showing repect for the artist contained within. So, with no small trepidition, I placed on headphones at my local record store, prepared to listen to " To Grover, With Love ", all the while smugly secure in my unfounded suspicions! But, once again, I was proven wrong....and happily so.
While many 'true' Jazz lover's would not find it complimentary Grover Washington ( along with David Sanborn ) may be primarily responsible for beginning the genre referred to as 'Smooth Jazz." And while many may wince at that remark it may, alas, very well be true as well. And with the list of artists to be found on " To Grover, With Love " it looks as though many have 'come home' to show their admiration for one of Jazz's true saxophone giants. A man, along with Stan Getz, who played his instrument in the most lyrical of fashions! And while paying tribute to a musician who has released an almost countless number of disc's may prove to be a task of almost 'herculean proportions' at least they do cover the basics here, and they cover them very well thank you!

I just saw that this amazing CD has been re-released.To me this is

not only an exceptional tribute to Grover Washington Jr.It is an exceptional CD period. Excellent performances and great arrangements of some of Grovers classics.I have followed Jason Miles's work for a number of years and I am constantly surprised that he is not a bigger name in the music world.He has a very visionary quality to his work and this CD just rocks from beginning to end.The last song Lorans Dance with Michael and Randy Brecker,

Joe Sample and Joey DeFrancesco is just wonderfull.This Cd is a must for any serious fan of great music
