His name may not seem familiar to you, but Dave Grusin is a multi-talented, Grammy award-winning composer, arranger and pianist. He is co-founder of GRP Records, a label that pioneered all-digital audio recordings, and spearheaded the “pop jazz” sound through artists like Patti Austin, Lee Ritenour and many others. In addition, he has composed memorable scores to many succesful films, including Tootsie, The Firm and On Golden Pond.
