This, the third selection of important Dave Grusin recordings (the other two being "Collection" and "Priceless Jazz)", covers his entire portfolio with GRP, including the tribute albums of the 1990s (but leaves out the records made for Arista-GRP, N2K and Decca).
There is no film music whatsoever, and with the Arista GRP albums left out, we are asked to believe the the VERY best of Dave Grusin could exist without the inclusion of his signature piece, “Mountain Dance.”
Perhaps with a different title, such as the Best of the GRP Years ....
