Highlight of course is the closer, Billy Cobham's (who's also the feature drummer) Taurian Matador wherein the fender bass locks into Cobhams over the top snare atop which Grover just rips it.
If you liked the funk of "Feels So Good", then think of this as the live-improvised beast from the same cage. Also reccomended is 1977s Live at the Bijou which too has long jams but are more groove based than the (spacier) jazz nature of this one.
mastered) that was available only very briefly on 2 Motown cd's many
years ago (vol.1, vol.2). If you are to own only 1 Grover Washington Jr.
recording, THIS is the one. Originally released as 2 albums in a box set
on the KUDU label (CTI auxillary) back in the early 70's, this cd is utter
perfection and brilliance from start to finish. Several of the tracks are
over 10 minutes in length. Bob James arranged/conducted this session
with a who's-who of the CTI/KUDU 70's all star studio cats with added
strings, horns, and voices, and BRILLIANTLY recorded. "Masterpiece",
"Trouble Man", "Don't Explain", "Easy Living/Ain't Nobody's Business" all
just kick a**. This was a stellar effort for Bob James at his best. It all
meshes so well. I've listened to it countless times since the first time I
heard it and was blown away. It was my first Grover Washington album,
and I STILL think it's his best. Sadly, Grover is no longer with us, and he `
left us MUCH too soon, but his fabulous music (such as this) will live on
forever. A masterpiece, indeed! Thanks, Grover. 100 million stars.
This is early Grover at his best according to one reviewer. If you weren't a fan of jazz or else a listener of real music, I suggest you give this a shot. I recommend others related to this like Freddie Hubbard's
Windjammer, Ride Like the Wind, Love Connection, and Red Clay,

When I first heard this structured jam of an album, split into two imported vinyl parts, I was touched and that's why I went to see this master.
I listen to it now and Grover's music has reached back and touched me again.
There's no need to explain.
