Genre: Crossover Jazz, Smooth Jazz

Quality: FLAC (tracks+.cue)
  1. Inside Moves (Gadd, MacDonald, Salter)
  2. Dawn Song (Miller)
  3. Watching You Watching Me (Eaton)
  4. Secret Sounds (Washington)
  5. Jet Stream (Sorenson, Steacker ...)
  6. When I Look at You (Jurman, Webster)
  7. Sassy Stew (Washington)


Although Grover Washington Jr. (on alto, tenor, soprano and baritone) puts on his usual strong effort, the forgettable material (which included no hits) and the emphasis on vocals (particularly those of Jon Lucien who is on five of the seven selections) makes this one of Washington's weaker efforts and the least essential of his four Elektra recordings. The background vocalists do not help much either. This was Grover Washington, Jr.'s only full-length album as a leader during the 1982-86 period but was not worth the effort.
