Mister Magic by Grover Washington, Jr.
Released: Nov 1974
Label: Motown
This groovy collaboration between Washington and keyboardist/arranger Bob James became a huge 1970s instrumental album and even made the Top 10 pop charts. All the stereotypes of Me Decade music are here, including wa-wa guitars, echo-laden Rhodes keyboards and major hi-hat drum action, but it works. A highlight is the gorgeous reading of Strayhorn's "Passion Flower."
