5.0 out of 5 stars I Love It! May 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Andre Ward has taken his smooth saxophone sounds to the next level. I imagine as an artist you're always trying to improve your craft in a way that is meaningful. I would have to say not only has this been done but the standard has just been raised. There's something here for every listening taste without compromising. Not one day has gone by that I have not listened to this cd over and over again. My hope is that people reading THIS review will give this project a chance. You will not be disappointed in any way, shape or form. There's a song for people who enjoy stepping...Chicago Here We Go. There are wonderful vocals as well. Marc Nelson formerly of AZ Yet sings beautifully on I Don't Want to Be In Love. I absolutely love the vocalists on Wishful Thinking and More Than Friends. Instrumentally...Abstract is bananas. It's not like anything I've ever heard and I absolutely love it. New Orleans Lights gives me a chance to remember a time when that city was at its bold, bright and most beautiful best. The title cut Crystal City is absolutely beautiful and I fell in love with Andre's Theme long before the cd had officially been released. If you're looking for something fresh and innovative. A cd that you'll never grow tired of listening to, Crystal City is the one for you.

Andre...you did your thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Movin' on up! May 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Andre ward's cd crystal city is a very well put together cd. Like the master grover washington,marion meadows and my favorite the late great george howard... andre has carved out his own voice among saxophonists. With this cd he plays the ewi on chicago{here we go}.Which is a steppers jam bringing to mind everette harp on that tune. Very nicely produced by yasha and orpheus records

What's not to like...He's pure magic. The songs featuring singing artists weren't my favorite but all in all I enjoyed the cd. My preference between this and Caution is Caution.

This was actually a gift my father requested. He loves the music and listens to it everyday. I would recommend this for people who like music for relaxing or feeling the groove.
