This entire CD is worth listening to.
Michaelangelo
It's relatively untapped and not a very popular album, so when you flip the beat in your sampler, it will be fresh!
Alex Prefect
One of the best albums from an artist whose talent and great musicianship I truly miss.

As the title already states, I think the rating for this album should be even higher. I've been listening to it for years and years now, and I never get bored. This live performance is an excellent example of how jazz used to be funky in the seventies. It's all about the groove! Grover spits out all of his emotions while the jazz-funk outfit Locksmith accompanies him. The band's members also composed eight out of the nine superb songs on the album. Moreover, each of the band's individual members turns out to be an outstanding soloist as well. James "Sid" Simmons, Richard Lee Steacker, Leslie Burrs, John Blake, and Leonard "Dr." Gibbs. Drummer Millard "Pete" Vinsom and bass player Tyrone Brown give new meaning to the phrase: "Drums and bass gotta smash your face"! Grover will mention all the players' names so that there's a good chance that after a while the players will become your house friends like they have become mine. Listen to this musical message from the Philadelphia nightclub, and enjoy it over and over again. And most important of all: SPREAD THE WORD!

When I've just bought the cd "Live at the Bijou" I heard the sad news that Grover Washington jr. had passed away. This live performance was truly a highlight in Mr. Washington's musical career as well as in Jazzfunk. It's soulful, funky and timeless. All tracks are extremely groovy and the excellent performances of Mr. Washington and his band, Locksmith, give you the feeling that you're really at the Bijou. This masterpiece is a fine way to always remember the great Grover Washington Jr.!

One of the best albums in Grover Washington's vast catalog is this great live album "Live At The Bijou". Recorded before a crowd in his hometown of Philadelphia, Washington plays with a fire and passion that would only be heard sporatically on subsequent albums. Funky tracks like "Lock It In The Pocket", "On The Cusp" and "Funkfoot" and mellow tracks like "Sausalito" and "Days Of Our Lives"(which is in a medley with "Mr. Magic") provide a nice balance on this 75 plus minutes disc. The original album package has been nicely restored in CD format, which the original issue didn't even bother with. The most dramatic improvement is in the sound quality. Even the original album sounded a little muddy at times, but the original CD issue ranked as one of the worst sounding CD's ever pressed. This newly remastered version sounds clean and bright. One of the best albums from an artist whose talent and great musicianship I truly miss.

"Live At The Bijou"was the first 70's jazz album I ever heard.The funky "Funkfoot" and the jazzy"You Make Me Dance" were simple mind blowing songs to me. After I heard this album I knew I was a Grover fan. When I found out he died in 1998 I was very sad because I felt like the world lost a true musicial musican. After this album I went out and brought albums like "Skylarkin","Paradise" and "Winelight".After I heard Grover I started to get into some stuff my dad listened to like The Crusaders,Rick Braun,Brian Culbertson and Steve Cole. Grover Washington Jr. will always live on.

Grover Washington, Jr. is definitely known for his many live performances, but this one, in my book is by far one of his most remarkable. Listening to this entire CD engulfs you with passion and delight. It makes you feel like you are actually at the Bijou Cafe, kicking back and grooving at the same time!! I highly recommend this CD to all musicians and music fans!!!!

Ladies and gentleman,presenting GROVER WASHINGTON JR. backed up by the funky rhythms of the band Locksmith for one of THE definative live albums in all of jazz/funk,maybe ever?Anyway with the exception of the exceptionally funky 20 minute live medley of "Days In Our Lives/Mr.Magic" everything on this album is previously unreleased live versions of songs from a solo album Grover never released.And about that FUNKY MUSIC it is,filled with celebratory soul and rhythms straight out of the "united funk" era."Lock It In The Pocket" is one of the finest slices of funk Grover has ever put to wax and just keeps you begging and begging for more.This tremendously grooving concert is also tempered by the inclusion of of two lighter tunes,the tranquil "You Make Me Dance" and "Summer Song",the only vocal tune here that's a happy-go-lucky romp down the funky soul path that will peak the interest of fans of people like The Blackbyrds and Stevie Wonder.On "Jeffere" and "Sausalito" the whole band gets into jazzier relms of the funk whereas "Funkfoot" is almost overwelming in it's density.There is one critically important thing about this recording;this came before the mellower sentiments of Winelight and Come Morning,back during a time where Grover was BLOWING heft funk-jazz on his sax.And especially here he does it with tons of passion and zeal to spare;the band are HOTTER then they come but Grover's solos truely get your attention upfront.So if your not big into the sound of a saxaphone,this is probably not the album for you.But for those who love that AND love to groove 'Live At The Bijou' is a wonderful treat,a classic to be enjoyed by all those who partake!
