Following the example of soulful peers such as Curtis Mayfield and Les McCann, Grover Washington Jr. used Live at the Bijou's concert setting to elaborate upon the grooves that fuel his repertoire and to showcase the talent of his supporting cast. The three-piece rhythm section is in particularly fine fettle, mostly eschewing the fluidity of jazz in favor of sassy, rollicking funk that climaxes near the end of the disc with "Sausalito" (featuring percussionist Leonard Gibbs) and "Funkfoot." Flautist Leslie Burrs grabs center stage with a long, Washington-esque solo on "Days in Our Lives," and keyboardist James Simmons and violinist John Blake also have their signature moments. But the spotlight inevitably returns to Washington. Performing at the age of 34 at a neighborhood club in his native Philadelphia, the saxophonist is in prime form, tearing through "Mr. Magic" on tenor and prancing over "You Make Me Dance" with a fleet-fingered soprano solo. All told, Live at the Bijou ranks just behind Inner City Blues, Mister Magic, and Winelight as an essential part of his voluminous catalog. --Britt Robson

I bought this CD having borrowed my elder brother's vinyl double album constantly 20 years ago.

Quite frankly, this is one of the best albums you are ever likely to hear, with Grover in his prime and a superb supporting cast.

There are no weak tracks but my favourites are the deliciously funky Funkfoot and Sausalito. Mr Magic is a classic Grover track and Dr John doesn't let him down with the percussion!

Once you've heard this, you'll keep on playing it. Sad to think we will never hear any new stuff from the great man.

I agree with the author, below, a classic, not a bad track in this line up. Funk, jazz-funk, soul-jazz, it's all here, and live. My favourite track is difficult to say, but I just love the nice and slow 'Juffure', it just contains sooooooooooooooo much soul.
Some say winelight is his best, well I disagree. This live piece is much much better, but I guess it depends if you prefer the ol'skool Grover or the softer more commercial Grover. This album I believe is nicely positoned between these two periods of Grover's work.
So what is Grover's best-for me: 'feels so good'-buy it if you can!

Any fan of the saxophone will love this I would have thought - add the timeless funk of grover Washington and his cohosrts in a live setting and you have a wonderful barnstorming album! The only duff track for me is the vocal Summer Song which is lame but the rest is pure gold!

A really good easy listening album with a couple of lively tracks thrown in. I bought after hearing Mike Chadwick's selection on Jazz FM.

The ultimate live "jazz funk" album. Grover on point with back-up from of course "Locksmith".
