Review By: Cheryl Armour
In addition to being an accomplished jazz recording artist, is also a pianist, composer and arranger. He has scored many films and popular television series. His film credits include "The Graduate", ", "Tootsie", "The Firm" and many more. He has won 10 and an Oscar and has remained at the top of the jazz charts consistently over the last 30 years.
"An Evening with Dave Grusin" finds him on stage, front and center, conducting and performing with several major stars including Jon Secada, Patti Austin and Monica Mancini. Backed by the 75-piece Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra, the sound is rich and full, symphonic and jazzy. This performance was recorded at the Adrienne Arscht Center in Miami, Florida and will leave you feeling as though you were in the crowd. While many of the tunes in this collection may be familiar, they take on a whole new vibe having been recorded live, tinged with flavors contributed by various guest performers and musicians. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Dave Grusin, this CD will take you on a journey which spans his illustrious career and allows you to sample some of his best work.
