Format: Audio CD
When you think of "INNER CITY BLUES" (1972) a Marvin Gaye tune, there is a man who gives us his interpretation with sounds of Jazz/Rhythm & Blues to a perfect blend, the great saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. This artist became a major name after recording "MISTER MAGIC" (1975) with Bob James, with his classic sound. On every track Grover displays his skills as the brilliant artist he was, a collection of the most diversified music ever to come out of this man's heart and soul.
Highlights are - "JUST THE TWO OF US" (1980) composed by Bill Withers and his vocal on this track is enhanced by this wonderful arrangement, complete perfection - "REED SEED" (trio tune)(1978) smooth, with superb harmonies from Grover who composed this composition, classical in every way - "AIN'T NO SUNSHINE" (1972) another Withers tune from the depths of soul, let's the sunshine in on a top flight performance from Washington.
Hip-O Records and Pat Lawrence have given us the "Ultimate" with this collection of the best and some of the best from legend - Grover Washington Jr.!
Total Time: 72:50 on 11 Tracks/ Hip-O records - 012 153 888 2 (1999)

Yes, I agree-Heaven has some of the greatest horn blowers ever! I know the man upstairs is really happy. Our loss, but His gain. This is one of the best albums by Grover, and even if you are not a serious listener, this is the one to have. A real taste of the Grover we all know and still love...

Grover Washington - Ultimate Collecttion
This is an excellent CD. I thought I had all of Grover's music. However, I found several collections I do not have. But, this collection is great. I play it when I exercise, go walking, on the stereo at home, my pc or in the car. I love it. The song I was looking for is on here.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Ruby Glover

This CD is infectiously good. It is an outstanding collection of Mr. Washington's work that includes a surprisingly wide range of music that spans from the funk-like "Mister Magic", to the cerebral "Moonstreams"; from the pop/jazz blend "Just the Two of Us", to the hip "Black Forest". The astute listener will discover interesting blends and bends in several of the songs, while the jazz/rock/pop/blues practitioner will appreciate the expert artistry.

Mr. Washington's notes were not always perfect, on his recordings, and it seems that he was just fine with that. To me, hearing those imperfections makes his music even more accessible and outstanding. He was obviously more interested in communicating his message rather than massaging the notes. He succeeded, brilliantly, where many others have tried, and failed.

Simply put, Grover Washington's songs sing, and speak, to the listener at a deep level. Buy this CD, and be prepared to go on a musical journey that you'll enjoy for many hours, days, months, years...it's a Masterpiece!
