The President of Smooth Jazz - A Great Concert Experience
arch114 | 02/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD captures a great jazz musician who really knows how to play in a smooth enjoyable way. From the opening song Winelight to the closing song Let it Flow (A song written for Julies Erving the basketball great) this is a really enjoyable show. Grover was truely a gifted and talented musician. It is very sad that we have lost him to this world entirely too early, I am sure that if there is smooth jazz in heaven Grover is leading the a way. Fortunatley for us his spirit and music can live on forever and this show on DVD is a nice memory of Grover live in concert. He certainly knew how to play and make you feel at ease just listening to his every note. Grover's has so many great CD's over the years and if you are a fan and even if you are just a fan of great music this DVD concert will make you feel great once you have experienced it. I received and watched it on the same day and the only thing that will change the next time I see it is that I am going to invest in a surround sound system for my DVD system so that this can be appreciated even more. I intend to take this to my friends to let them enjoy this concert at well. it is an enjoyable hour. Grover wil always be here through his music and will always be the president of Smooth jazz. I just hope they can find some more Grover Washington Jr. DVD concerts for my enjoyment."

"For those of you who like the get right down to business approach, this is definitely the one. Not only that, it contains some of the most awesome performances by Grover and his band! If I had something bad to say about this video, it would be, there was no bass player solo, and not much camera coverage of the bass player's fingering, seeing how i'm inspiring to be a bass player. I think, up close video coverage of a master at work is a student's best teaching aide. But, we must not forget that this about, Master of Sax, Grover Washington Jr."
A Classic All the Way!

"I bought this dvd as a gift for my husband and we watched it the day it arrived. We were blown away by this performance featuring all of our favourite music by this most talented musician. This is a definite must-have for lovers of the jazz sax as well as of Grover himself. We couldn't be happier with it."
