"A memorable set of high-quality and danceable soul-jazz." — AllMusic
Winelight (1980) won a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance in 1982 for revered Jazz musician Grover Washington Jr. The album also includes the hit 'Just the Two of Us' sung by Bill Withers, which also won a Grammy in the best R&B song category. The track 'In the Name of Love' was also released in rearranged form. Washington really pushes himself on some of these selections. Winelight is, therefore, a memorable set of high quality and danceable soul-jazz.
