Yet Another Teaser

Things have gotten mildly complicated around the EITW studios this week. No real worries, but things are just slightly askew. So here’s another tease for the post I had hoped to offer today, a post that will now be presented Monday.

One of the better aural pairings of the early 1980s was the voice of Bill Withers and the saxophone of Grover Washington, Jr., which showed up in 1980 in “Just The Two Of Us,” a track on Washington’s Winelight album. An edited version of the track – credited to Washington “with Bill Withers” – hit the charts early in 1981 and went to No. 2 on the pop chart and No. 3 on the R&B chart. Here’s the album track.

One Response to “Yet Another Teaser”

    Alas, poor Grover got a bad rep with some of his more bland fusion offerings towards the end of his career. 1981’s “Come Morning” LP in particular is a masterclass in creating smooth jazz that is not offensive in its Kenny G-ishness.
