Although hard bop/soul-jazz was the main focus of Davell Crawford's sophomore effort, The B-3 and Me, it would be a mistake to think that he plays jazz exclusively. In fact, gospel and classic New Orleans R&B were the main focus of his enjoyable debut album, Let Them Talk, which was recorded when Crawford was only 19. While Crawford was heard mainly as a Jimmy Smith-type jazz organist on The B-3 and Me, his piano and vocals are much more prominent on this likable CD. As an acoustic pianist, Crawford draws heavily on Professor Longhair and James Booker, and his passionate, full-bodied R&B singing on "You Game Me Love," "Something You Got" and "Still In Love" are influenced by the great recordings that Fats Domino and Longhair made in the 1950s. Considering that most of Crawford's peers in the Black community were mainly into rap and urban contemporary in the mid-1990s, it's hard not to be impressed by his command of older African-American styles.

John Coltrane, the Continuous Blow(n)

Just half a century ago, the American saxophonist passed away at only 40 years old, leaving behind many recordings which have revolutionized the history of his instrument, of jazz, and also of the music of the twentieth century.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.
