JAY GRAYDON - Works [Japan only] (2010)

JAY GRAYDON - Works Japan only CD
Requested in "REQUEST & FILL CORNER" section...

Talking about JAY GRAYDON is talking about finesse and class.
Called the "producers' producer", the "guitarists' guitarist", Graydon's discography reads like a Who's Who of an entire sector of the US music scene from the last 40+ years.
A double Grammy winner, Jay has been involved on almost all major AOR albums from the '80s. But the sheer volume and diversity of this man's work defies belief.

A few years ago, a compilation including some of the most successful works either produced, composed, arranged or featuring Jay Graydon was released only in Japan under the title... "Works".
We have pure AOR cuts from Bill Champlin, Airplay, Marc Jordan or Pages, but also pop, R&B, jazzy from such diverse artists like Boz Scaggs, Valerie Carter or George Benson. All are refined pieces of music, it doesn't matters the genre.

"Jay Graydon Works" is a pleasure from start to finish to enjoy this consummate studio craftsman.
Japanese exclusive release, not so easy to find. If you see a copy at a reasonable price, buy it with your eyes closed.

To begin with, Marc Jordan's "I'm A Camera" was the main reason to go after this compilation, a song that is so easygoing and smooth you simply love it. I'm sure more great songs within this wonderful record mix will still follow after I have given it a listen at full length.

So again, Camelblue, you hit the bull's eye! :-)

Bye for now,
Thomas
