很喜欢他的作品和他的才华。他以一种甜蜜的方式来提高他对声音的感觉。这是我在富尔顿县图书馆初次接触到Dave Valentin 的第一张CD。所有的重拍包含主打曲都达到了示范级的标准。
5.0 out of 5 starsMy introduction to Dave Valentin
By Henry Cooper on May 22, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I love his work, I love his talent. He has a sweet sensation on the the way he improves his sound. This was the first CD I'd been introduced to him at a Fulton County Library in Roswell GA or whatever. All the remakes are tight incl. the title track to the album which is a good standard to me. He absolutely worked w/ everybody from Ralph McDonald, Anthony Jackson, Steve Gadd and Dave Grusin (who's among my favorite people from the GRP group and along w/ film scores, music and everything), among others.
This is sure is a CD I must-have even tho I don't have it yet. Most standout tracks are: Legends, I want to be Where u Are, Bouree in E Minor, Patterns for the Sky and Afro Blue.

This was acclaimed flautist Dave Valentin's breakout debut album for the up start GRP Records founded by jazz legend and Oscar Winner Dave Grusin and his friend and partner, Larry Rosen which was churning out surprise hit jazz albums from the mid to late 1970's producing the likes of Jon Lucien, Earl Klugh, Lee Ritenour, Noel Pointer, Angela Bofill, and Tom Browne which would really boost sales for the likes of Blue Note and Arista Records until they founded their company in 1982. Legends was a surprise success for GRP and one of their best albums alongside their best sellers that Bofill and Browne would produce. The album is a great mix of latin, classical and smooth jazz fusion that set up GRP to be one of the greatest jazz labels and one that would dominate the 80's and 90's. Valentin's performance is spot on here and the album is well produced by Grusin and Rosen backing their featured players with a string orchestra that brings out the best in the young flautest from the Bronx. If you're a Dave Valentin fan, this his quintessential masterpiece and easily one of the best jazz albums of the late 1970's.
