Knowing this, Grusin and Rosen produced CD Samplers three in three different volumes from —87    that showcased the artists on the label, the sound quality, and performances due to the lack of other record labels having joined the format at that time which lasted until , when a lot of the record labels made the transition to the CD format.
These CDs did help gain the label an audience with the audiophiles who first bought these machines and also, to expand the label in format. Their first batches of pressed discs from until came directly from Japan by the JVC Corporation, which are audiophile in quality and were quality produced recordings that truly displayed the dynamic range of the performances, unlike an LP or cassette. In , Grusin would release his second purely digitally recorded album and his first one for his label, Night-Lines ,  which used even more contemporary digital equipment and instruments not unlike his effort for Arista Records, Mountain Dance.
So would artist Billy Cobham and his purely digital album, Warning , who recorded this album during the year. Grusin and Rosen were approached by the JVC Corporation late in to represent them because of their standards for the highest quality in recording and for their well-regarded albums for the latest in their audio technology. So for the first time under their own banner, the label conducted its first live tour around Europe and the US during the Summer of Eventually, the label decided to have a "live session" which was videotaped at the Record Plant Recording Studio in Los Angeles, California  as well featuring all of the members of that travelled that included Grusin, Ritenour, Valentin, Schuur and their GRP recording members.
Grusin provided the original musical score for the film, but the film had been tracked by music from Grusin's breakthrough digital album, Mountain Dance which became the main theme for the film despite writing a purely jazz score in the same vein. In , the label released their first-ever soundtrack to any motion picture for the drama, American Flyers starring Oscar winner Kevin Costner , which was composed and performed by Lee Ritenour and Greg Matheson , who were with the label exclusively at the time.
In , Eddie Daniels  would make his Grammy-nominated debut for the label with Breakthrough ,  which was a fusion album of a different sort as Daniels' clarinet solos were mixed with a huge London Orchestra creating a very elaborate and popular album that melded both jazz and classical together. A year later, Daniels' follow-up album for the label To Bird With Love ,  would be the very first "pure" jazz recording for the label dedicated to the late saxophonist Charlie Parker , gaining positive reviews.
By , the label was no longer independent as they signed a distribution deal with MCA Distributing, one of the six largest distribution companies in the US at the time.

The album was produced in conjunction to the United States Postal Office's official. The label also signed vibraphonist Gary Burton  and saxophonist Tom Scott ,  who would make significant contributions to the label with well-received albums of their own in "Reunion"  and "Born Again",  which is Scott's first pure jazz recording for the label and the first in more than a decade at the time and "Them Changes",  which was the music from the short-lived "The Pat Sajak Show"  that ran on CBS from January to , where Scott was the musical director on.
The label also recorded the first of three Christmas albums featuring artists from the label entitled "A GRP Christmas Collection"  that included jazz interpretations of classic Christmas songs and some that are obscure arranged in diverse ways by the artist recording on it.
The label would produce two more albums in  and , which was the final one under Grusin and Rosen's supervision before they departed from the label in You may send this item to up to five recipients.
