Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this music junkie as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. Compact Discs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no files.

Lee Ritenour & Dave Grusin - Two Worlds (2000)

In which two very talented musicians who made their reputations in the jazz, pop, and soundtrack genres tackle some lite classical music and a few originals in the same vein. I'll take a pass on this one, but let's check out what the ever-reliable reviewers over at Amazon have to say:
  • "I'm donating it to my local library."
  • "I listened to this album as I was doing some household chores and doing the dishes."
  • "smooth and romantic...dim the light"
  • "This is a great CD. For me - it makes me feel alive."
  • "perfect for my daughter's waiting room--she's a family councilor." [sic]

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on the Billboard Top Classical Crossover chart: #6

I enjoy track 6, a Ritenour original.

  1. Never having listened to this album until today, I was shocked to recognize one of the tracks.

    The track you called out ("Lagrima") gets regular airplay on the Mellow Mix stream of Radio Paradise. I've spent many hours listening to that stream and found a few new favorite songs and artists.
