Hi just been looking at The Best Grover Washington,in particular Winelight,noticed a awful lot of grace notes in this tune and in the rest of the book,but can someone explain what is meant by subtones over certain bars and also 8va.Thanks Bumnote.

Well 8va means play an octave higher than written. Subtone is a really breathy tone, think 'Stan Getz''Ben Webster'.
