This is one of Grover Washington, Jr.'s best-loved recordings and considered a classic of r&bish jazz. All four songs (which includes Billy Strayhorn's "Passion Flower") are quite enjoyable but it is "Mister Magic" that really caught on as a major hit. Bob James provided the colorful if somewhat commercial arrangements, there are spots for guitarist Eric Gale, and Washington (mostly on tenor and soprano) is heard in particularly creative form. Highly recommended.

I must say that all the tracks are put excellent including the title cut. You can tell that a lot of creativity went into it and heart. The music stands the test of time and will continue to do so. If you love good music, I strongly recommend this cd from a great saxophonist who was gone too soon but his music will live on.
