  • WINELIGHT is probably one of Grover Washington's best-loved albums. It includes Bill Withers' Grammy Award winning song "Just the Two of Us," and other well-executed smooth jazz compositions. Washington has long been one of the leaders in R&B-influenced jazz, and this album consolidates his claim to fame as one of the fathers of this often misunderstood sub-genre.
  • Steve Gadd's smart drumming gives each song a relaxed, infectious groove. The saxophonist really unwinds on tunes such as "Let it Flow (for "Dr. J.)" and "Make Me a Memory (Sad Samba)," improvising over a soulful blend of blues, jazz, and pop, a combination both accessible to mainstream pop listeners and musically compelling to jazz fans.
