Grover Washington Jr. - Winelight (1980). Пластинка выиграла две премии Грэмми в следующих категориях: . учшее джаз-фьюжн исполнение, . учшая R'n'B песня - Just the two of us (duet with Bill Withers). Songs in album Grover Washington Jr.

Grover Washington, J. has long been one of the leaders in what could be called rhythm & jazz, essentially R&B-influenced jazz. Winelight is one of his finest albums, and not primarily because of the Bill Withers hit "Just the Two of U. It is the five instrumentals that find Washington (on soprano, alto, and tenor) really stretching out. If he had been only interested in sales, Washington's solos could have been half as long and he would have stuck closely to the melody. Instead he really pushes himself on some of these selections, particularly the title cut.

When Grover Washington, Jr. passed away in 1999 the jazz world lost one of its most successful and talented creators, and in his wake a slew of saxophonists have stepped up to fill the void. The quiet greatness of Winelight has not faded 35 years after its release. It's far and away the best album of Washington's long career. The slip n' slide funk of "Mister Magic" put Washington on the map, but Winelight was the evidence he could flat out play. Washington would go on to record 11 more albums before his horn fell silent, but none approached the all-time high of Winelight.
