Here's another one that takes me way back to the days when I was a carefree and callow youth. I was just beginning to take jazz seriously than, and was filled with awe at the wide range of different artistes and their speciality instruments that were available to me as a listener.
I wasn't alone. My peers - friends and fellow undergrads - and I were fascinated by guys like Dave Grusin, alongside other contemporary jazz pianists and keyboardists of the time like Bob James, Joe Sample, Ramsey Lewis and Rodney Franklin. (We were also heavily into Herbie Hancock but we always considered him to be in an altogether different league). All of them had an individual trademark sound that we all found instantly recognisable. Pianos and keyboards might all sound alike but it's the players that somehow channel their personalities through their instruments any time they play them. That well-established fact has never ceased to amaze me
Wow! I just entered this CD into my Delicious Library software and was blown-away at the current value! It doesn't surprise me however - this is truly a fantastic repertoire of Grusin cuts. I remember well my dad listening to the vinyl a lot when it came out. When I started collecting/transitioning tapes & vinyl into the new CD 'thing' - I got this immediately. Good thing - now ripped into the iPod I enjoy it a lot too (you just gotta love the whistle)! Awesome! This CD is a GRP Digital Master.
I purchased this CD when it came out as a japanese import CD at an horrendous price. However the music and the sound is fantastic. For those who are fans of Grusin's music it is a pleasure and sonically one of the best CDs I have to test equipement.
