Spanning three decades, this collection gathers material from his career with Motown, Elektra, and Columbia Records. It paints a broad yet clear picture of a gifted musician. His most successful recording of course was his collaboration with Bill Withers, "Just The Two Of Us" which is here in its long version. Other guest appearances include Grady Tate, Patti Labelle, Bill Cosby (no, he doesn't sing), Phyllis Hyman and Lalah Hathaway. In addition to his own compositions, he does his own interpretation of "Mercy Mercy Me"(Marvin Gaye), "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life"(Stevie Wonder) and "Jamming"(Bob Marley). The last two tracks were released posthumously. The liner notes give a good backstory of his rise to stardom.

One of the most popular saxophonists of all time, Grover Washington, Jr. was a pacesetter in his field. With roots in rhythm and blues and soul-jazz organ combinations, he also played straight-ahead jazz. A highly influential player, Washington pushes himself with the spontaneity and chance-taking of a masterful jazz musician.A renowned live performer, Washington is able to display his own personal voices on soprano, tenor, alto and even his infrequently used baritone sax.

This is one of Grover Washington, Jr.'s best-loved recordings and considered a classic of r&bish jazz. All four songs (which includes Billy Strayhorn's "Passion Flower") are quite enjoyable but it is "Mister Magic" that really caught on as a major hit. Bob James provided the colorful if somewhat commercial arrangements, there are spots for guitarist Eric Gale, and Washington (mostly on tenor and soprano) is heard in particularly creative form. Highly recommended.

Anthology is a copulation of the greatest hits from perhaps the greatest Sax player ever. Every song on this Album is a masterpiece, and well worth the money spent. There are so many timeless classics on This two CD set, like "Georgia On My Mind" and "Ain't No Sunshine." My only complaint would be the fact "Winelight" was not included, but I own the CD so not too much of a loss. If you love Jazz, especially if you love the sax, I highly recommend this album.

Maturity for jazzmen has often been equated with the ability to speak passionately in a ballad setting and in this regard Washington never flags from his responsibilities. Both “Don’t Explain” and “Easy Living” find the saxophonist in peak form. His tone is lush and fervent, but never too sweet or saccharine. By contrast, funkier numbers like “Masterpiece” and “Taurian Matador” feature Washington at his soulful best in a style that has likely influenced scores of “lite jazz” saxophonists over the years but has never sounded quite as convincing in anyone’s hands but this master.

Another addition to the Manhattans' bulging cache of mellow sounds. Gerald Alston, Winnie Lovett, Ernest Bivens and Kenny Kelly made a career of recording romance, heartache and make-out tunes. The popular "We Never Danced to a Love Song" fits in well with their other ballads, as does the majestic "It Just Can't Stay this Way" and "Let's Start All Over Again." They hit the charts with the somewhat contrived "I Kinda Miss You," and the title track, the eloquent "It Feels So Good to Be Loved So Bad" is classic - the harmony is tight and they add a little doo wop for good measure.

Winelight is a smooth, well produced groove, that flows together nicely. It is an album good for waking up to on a Sunday morning, or playing while enjoying a bottle of wine late Saturday night. The songs feature enough tempo changes to keep things interesting, and Grover extends several of his solos, often playing beyond the context of the song. Ralph MacDonald’s percussion is particularly effective throughout the album.

Eddie Henderson's lovely flugelhorn colors the opening track, "E Preciso Perdoar (One Must Forgive)," setting the mood for a very mellow set. Washington, accompanied by six pieces, plays the standards straighter than Johnny Mathis sings them; everything is ratcheted down '40s-ish/'50s-ish cozy nightclub style.

Like Ike & Tina Turner, the Ikettes had a pretty confusing recording career, releasing numerous discs for several labels and enduring several lineup changes. They did, however, settle at Modern for a while in the mid-'60s, releasing six singles and one LP for the company. This 27-track compilation includes all of that material, as well as some solo recordings by Ikettes Venetta Fields and Flora Williams (aka Delores Johnson), adding quite a few outtakes and alternate takes not issued in the '60s. It's not, it should be a clarified, a greatest-hits compilation; it doesn't include anything not recorded for Modern, which means it doesn't have their biggest hit, 1962's Top 20 single "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" (released on Atco), though it does have their only other Top 40 pop entry, 1965's "Peaches 'n' Cream."
