Anthology: The Best Of Grover Washington, Jr. (Box Set)
Released: Mar 1996
Like George Benson, Grover Washington was a seriously gifted bopper who ended up creating a crossover style that led to smooth jazz. This two-disc set spotlights Washington's 1970s recordings, an era when he married jazz, funk and soul so deftly that you don't think about labels at all. This is music that brings people together -- and it's also funky as hell.
