The only pop hit for Grover Washington Jr. - the man Bobby Hebb calls "one of the greatest saxophone players in the world" - came in March of 1981 off of his Winelight disc which was recorded in the summer of 1980 and released on Elektra Records. It was the unmistakable voice of Bill Withers which helped propel this to the Top 3, with the single staying on the charts for about a third of the year. This was also a departure for guest star Withers whose three other Top 3 hits from about a decade earlier were all hesitating soulful announcements - "Lean On Me", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Use Me" - the titles telling the tale. On "Just The Two Of Us" Withers gets to display his voice in an uptempo pop format, with Grover Washington Jr.'s unique blend of "crossover jazz" helping establish his own name to those enamoured of the Top 40. It's a magical combination taking the composition written by Withers, Ralph MacDonald and William Salter to a world where rapper/actor Will Smith, Regina Belle, Carl Doy and many others found expression in this romantic melody.
