Grover Washington Jr., les années Elektra

Après l’anthologie Sacred Kind Of Love parue en 2019, SoulMusic Records présente In The Name Of Love, un coffret 5-CDs réunissant les cinq albums enregistrés par Grover Washington Jr. pour le label Elektra entre 1979 à 1984.

Pionnier du mouvement smooth jazz et figure incontournable du jazz-funk dans les années 1970, le saxophoniste a atteint de nouveaux sommets de popularité grâce au LP Winelight (1980) et son titre phare “Just The Two Of Us“, interprété par Bill Withers, et The Best Is Yet To Come (1982) et sa chanson-titre featuring Patti LaBelle.

Produit par David Nathan, masterisé par Nick Robbins, In The Name Of Love rassemble également toutes les faces-B et versions édit de chaque single de cette période. Ce coffret est accompagné par un livret du journaliste Charles Waring incluant des entretiens avec, entre autres, Dexter Wansel, Najee et Gerald Albright.

Grover Washington Jr In The Name Of Love – The Elektra Years (1979-1984) sera disponible le 26 novembre (distribution : Cherry Red).
