Reed Master At Work

"A performance in Mr. Washington's beloved Philly, a bit rough around the edges, especially while performing "Just The Two Of Us". This was a very memorable performance for fans of this wonderful artist. Accompanied by studio greats, Richard Tee, Eric Gale, Steve Gadd, Ralph McDonald, et. al., this performance lived up to all my expectations. The sound was a bit sub-par, but just watching a great reed master at work, was worth the price of admission. Definitely a keeper, as long as one's sound quality and camera work expectations are set lower than today's norm (not up to the sound and video quality of say The Eagles' When Hell Freezes Over, or Steely Dan's Two Against Nature). This performance was captured in 1981 and worth adding to one's musical DVD collection, in spite of its age. To think that Mr. Washington is now playing gigs in a "better place", capturing this performance for us mortals to view over and over again, will let his memory live on for those of us who hold him in high regard."
Grover at his best w/ audio/ video very disappointing

"Have always enjoyed Grover over the years, and was not disappointed at his performance on this dvd.
However the audio/video work was definitely not good quality. I hope someone does a re-make of this work so that one can really appreciate the skillful work put into this album by Grover and friends..."
I wish I was there

"This concert was wonderful. Grover gave his all in this concert. I love this man music so much when good talent go so young. We much keep his legacy going on. Many artist stepped up to the plate and some amazing tributes to him. I can watch this concert over and over. There is another concert of his on dvd it is a must have too stand room only."
