Leon Ware With Don Grusin – Candlelight

Candlelight is  a great album by soul legend Leon Ware together with well-known jazz pianist Don Grusin and other stellar jazz/smoothe jazz musicians such as Brian Bromberg and Oscar Castro-Neves. A departure for Ware who has made his career in the soul/adult r&b genre with his masterful compositions for Marvin Gaye (I Want You) and Quincy Jones (Body Heat”/”If I Ever Lose This Heaven) and the late Minnie Riperton (Inside My Love).

Inspired by these songs and the intimacy of working together with Don Grusin, a masterful keyboardist. they offer a few originals as well, the title cut Candlelight in particular which blends well in mood and content with the standards such as My Foolish Heart, Invitation and My Funny Valentine. The album sets the stage for an intimate evening of romance. Get this rare album at CDBaby.
