Biography

Biography by Ron Wynn

Randy Crawford's initial notoriety came from her fiery vocal on "Street Life," a 1979 song matching her with the Crusaders that was included on the soundtrack for Burt Reynolds' film Sharky's Machine. Crawford was born in Macon and grew up in Cincinnati; she worked in clubs as a teen, accompanied by her father. Crawford was lead vocalist in a ... Read more in Amazon's Randy Crawford Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The first thing that strikes you about Randy Crawford's performance on Feeling Good is the soulful ease with which she moves through the songs, whether sh'’s bluesily channeling Nina Simone on Billie Holiday's "Tell Me More and More and Then Some" or recasting Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talking" as a bouncy confection. The second thing that impresses you is how well she plays off the spare but supple acoustic piano of Joe Sample, who contributed the lively arrangements and co-produced the album with Tommy LiPuma. Nearly 30 years since she teamed with Sample and the Crusaders on the hit, "Street Life," both artists have left any stylistic excesses behind to deliver one of their breeziest efforts. Though the material is nothing if not eclectic--the Leo Sayer hit, "When I Need You," the Newley-Bricusse Broadway classic, "Feeling Good," and the jazz standard "But Beautiful" are also in the mix--Crawford's gospel-fed strength and not-to-be-underrated jazz phrasing hold the center. In bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Anthony Wilson, she has two name jazz players behind her, in addition to studio veterans Dean Parks and Ray Parker Jr. on guitars and Steve Gadd on drums. --Lloyd Sachs

5.0 out of 5 stars Randy is back! August 24, 2006
Over the years I have bought every Randy Crawford album without listening to it first. That wasn't always a wise thing to do.

But she's back! And how! With Joe Sample, Steve Gadd, Ray Parker Jr, Tommy LiPuma and others.

Randy's voice and delivery of material were never the problem. Arrangements and repertoire on the other hand....

Everything is 5 stars this time. Randy fans can savely press 'the 1 click ordering' button.

5.0 out of 5 stars Together again and better than ever!!! September 27, 2006
By JDB
Verified Purchase
I seldom submit my own reviews, but this album is extraordinary. This is THE Randy Crawford album to own!! I have all of Randy's recordings - and love them all - but this one stands alone.

She is backed by a small combo (including Christian McBride on bass and Ray Parker, Jr. on guitar); no strings or big arrangements, but they are hot! Randy and Joe Sample are perfect together (again). Randy's vocals are jazzier than usual and she and Joe seem to inspire one another. The disc has Randy's usual covers of standards and pop hits (Feeling Good, But Beautiful, Everybody's Talking, When I need You), some re-makes of her own recordings (Rio de Janiero Blue and Last Night at Danceland) and some unfamiliar (to me) fare and not a boring cut on the album.

The price: ugh! I guess it's currently available only as an import (recorded in NYC & LA but distributed out of Argentina!). No matter what, it's definitely worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars From good to Best March 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The master of elegant Soul Jazz is joined by Randy Crawford, delivering 13 Soulful relaxing jazz tracks full of taste and energy. Here you have it all; the Piano and the beat, the beautiful voice with all the musical feel.
This album surely ranks among Sample's best releases. Almost 70 years old, Mr. Sample seems only getting better and better.
Other well recommended Releases:

They are cheap and FAST!

Randy says this in the liner notes:

"There is a deliberate spareness to this project as far as physical musician manpower.

But the inspiration of all the voices we learned from, and instrumentalists that have touched our hearts and lives, were definitely included in our desire to keep you FEELING GOOD.

Invisible love affairs, imagined love affairs, tangible love affairs, love affairs, love affairs, love affairs."

Besides Randy and Joe Sample--the CD includes

Steve Gadd

Christian McBride

Ray Parker, Jr

It is amazing that this great collaboration took until now to happen. There was magic when Randy recorded the hit "Steet Life" with Joe Sample when he was still with the Crusaders back in 1979, and now we can enjoy an entire album of this terrific musical chemistry. Randy is one of the best and most underrated R & B/jazz singers, with her warm vibrato, fresh

phrasing, backed up by Joe Sample's distinctive piano style - aggressive,

yet spare enough to complement rather than override Randy's vocals.

The title song "Feeling Good" is a fresh and upbeat reinterpretation of the original standard, and better than anyone else's version I have heard.

From "Rio de Janeiro Blue" to "Sealine Woman" Randy spins her tales with

a quality that has no limits, and, although these are my favorites, every song on this album is a gem.

If you want to witness Joe and Randy live, check out the studio session on Youtube of "Street Life". It appears to have been done recently, about the same time as the making of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Good May 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD and you can just imagine Joe Sample basically having a jam session with Randy Crawford. The CD was the focus of a story on National Public Radio one day and that's when I learned about it! It exceeded my expectation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Good in Istanbul July 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I attended their concert last night in Istanbul, Turkey. They played their songs from this album and expectedly, Street Life, and some other tunes. I had a great time and the music was a feast. The crowd was enchanted by Randy's voice, and Mr. Sample had a very good connection with the audience. My favorites were her interpretations of Feeling Good and Tell Me More and More. I hope she sings a lot more in the years to come.
