A fabulous title track and a unique place in jazz history. These are just two of the elements which make “Mountain Dance” easily one of the most significant of Dave Grusin's musical offerings. Although originally recorded for JVC in 1979, this was the first Dave Grusin album to be released on his own label, Arista-GRP, in 1980. It not only represented the beginning of the digital age in jazz, but brought forth a piece which could easily be regarded as the Grusin signature tune, the always dazzling and exhilarating “Mountain Dance.” Starting off with the bouncy and infectious charmer, Dave Grusin's own “Rag Bag,” we move on to the mellow “Friends and Strangers,” a real anthem of the smooth side of the GRP sound (concert version to be heard on "GRP All-Stars Live In Japan").

EAC Rip | FLAC (Tracks) +CUE, LOG | 401 MB | No Scans
Genre: Folk Rock, Country, Smooth Jazz | Label: LateNightTales | Catalog Number: ALNCD11

A "here's-some-music-that's-influenced-us" mix, the 11th entry in the LATE NIGHT TALES series is an eclectic album compiled by the English folk-pop duo Turin Brakes. There's a mellow, downtempo vibe here, and a good bit of variety, with the likes of Chris Whitley and Gillian Welch sequenced alongside Talk Talk, Grant Green, J.J. Cale, and Silver Jews. Turin Brakes make a musical appearance with a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Moonlight Mile," which fits nicely into this blissfully low-key 17-song set.
