5 years of Club Cortez: Dave Grusin won’t return my calls

September 15, 2011

dave grusin won’t answer my calls – a grp artista mix by deluca to commemorate 5 years of club cortez mix

The semi-final instalment in my five-year-anniversary series is a special treat by good friend and longtime music blogger DeLuca of Royalgroove.org – i’ll let him explain!

Despite a close friendship of more than five years and a musical taste that shows many similarities, there is one chapter Cortez and DeLuca never got connected. We are talking about the GRP Arista years, end of the 70’s, early 80’s and artists like Bernard Wright, Tom Browne and Don Blackman. A little introduction to this overlooked chapter in smooth jazz funk, produced by Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen, is my birthday present to mister Cortez.

Tracklist

  1. Bernard Wright – Haboglabbo Trippin’
  2. Urban Ensemble – Return To Congolia
  3. Dave Grusin – Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow
  4. Dave Valentin – Sidra’s Dream
  5. Tom Browne – Forever More
  6. Don Blackman – Since You’ve Been Away
