Bright and sparkling with a catchy, immediately likable melody, “Early A.M. Attitude” is a contemporary jazz classic that earned. keyboardist Grusin and guitarist Ritenour a Grammy. The two musicians are old friends who have collaborated many times, and this tune reflects their easy accord. This is sure to appeal to fans of contemporary and smooth jazz, although jazz purists may find it a bit poppy for their taste.
