5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. This is the perfect Album to chill by !!, 15 July 2006
By 
This review is from: To Grover With Love (Audio CD)
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 star-studded 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.

A must buy !!
