Grover Washington, Jr., one of the most influential and well-regarded saxophonists of all time, left us too soon. He passed away in 1999 at age 56. WRTI 90.1 FM in Philadelphia teams up with NPR’s nationally syndicated radio show Jazz Night in America and other local partners to present this historic reunion concert— a tribute to Grover—with original members of Grover’s band at the Temple Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on Tuesday, July 18th at 7:30 pm. The concert will be recorded for broadcast on public radio stations throughout the United States in the fall.

Headliners Gerald Albright and Najee, who regarded Grover as a mentor, will perform alongside music director and keyboardist Bill Jolly, keyboardist Donald Robinson, guitarist Richard Lee Steacker, bassist Gerald Veasley, drummer Steve Wolf, and percussionist Pablo Batista. The band will be joined by special guest vocalist Jean Carn.

This concert marks the first time in almost 20 years that these original members of Grover’s band are sharing the stage to remember and celebrate “a great musician, mentor, and human being” says Bill Jolly. “We all loved Grover.”
