Grover Washington, Jr., 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 Us."

    Beautifully Capturing

    If you like music, you'll love this classic CD. It will brighten and enlighten your spirit. No matter what type of music you may think you are dedicated to. Grover is genius, the music is genius and so are the contributing artists. I can just about guarantee everyone who listens to this will be infatuated in short time.
