Randy Crawford

One of the most readily identifiable voices of any contemporary female vocalist, Randy Crawford's initial recognition 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, Georgia, and grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio; she worked in clubs as a teen, accompanied by her father. Crawford was lead vocalist in a group that included bassist Bootsy Collins before touring as George Benson's opening act in 1972. Cannonball Adderley invited her to sing on his LP Big Man. Crawford recorded "Don't Get Caught in Love's Triangle," a song produced by Johnny Bristol, during a short stay on the label. She soon moved to Warner Bros., and after "Street Life," recorded and toured Europe with the Crusaders. Crawford was tabbed Most Outstanding Performer at the 1980 Tokyo Music Festival. She remained with Warner Bros. through the '80s and early '90s, during which time she developed a strong following in Europe and Britain. In the new millennium, Crawford has remained quite active, often re-teaming with Crusaders keyboardist Joe Sample for such albums as 2006's Feeling Good, 2008's No Regrets, and 2012's concert album Live. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

A Beautiful Song Bird Oh yeah I Love Randys Voice What A Jam.
A Seasoned Very Talented Artist With Plenty to Offer what Beautiful Vocals This Woman Has
To eaches own i prefere some of her other tunes secrete combination when i loose my way this ole heart of mine and a few more i love randys voice
Trade Winds. Yes, you know, I am going to be 53 years old in September. I don't feel that old. I feel young still. I want my young body back. That's the only negative thing about me. I still have my young hair and my young face. Gravity is affecting my body so I have to go to gym. But, I have this question. How are you supposed to properly be at 53? I have no idea. I'm just doing my young thing. LOL! You know?
Dinah Washington with slightly more gravitas to the voice and far better technology, but her licks are a straight up lift. Punch up Dinah Washington's What a Difference A Day Makes. One can't help but be grateful that this voice and style remains alive in the world.

She is the best African American female vocalist since Billy Holliday. So many good songs; listen to If You'd Only Believe at a loud volume if you want to hear something incredibly special.
Rio de Janeiro Blue and her smooth vocals to Journey's Who's Crying Now?
I love all her songs but Knocking On Heavens Door is my all time fave !!
I would love to hear her again live, I came to Norfolk, VA from Texas in 1991 just to hear her on stage. I heard her for the 1st time in 1984 and have never stopped listening to her sultry voice. Love her, where is she now???
we listen to her at dinner Imagine is heaven!
Saw her in nyc 15 years ago she's awese
Randy Crawford's One Hello is one of my favorites. Just a beautiful song.
This commentary doesn't mention Rio de Janeiro Blue and Secret Combination not to mention One Day I'll Fly Away. I will carry my love for Randy Crawford through this life and into all those ahead.
teaching the youngstas something about good jazz

Awesome
Ms. Crawford is the BOMB!!! U better tell somebody
Randi Crawford is one of my favorite. Love. Love her rendition of John Lennon Imagine.
Her Naked and True CD is awesome. Wonder why it's not listed here?
I am in love with Randy's voice, every song she sings is musical genius.
No doubt in my mind, when she sings Purple Rain, Prince smiles!
she's so awesome, love her music. every time that I hear her name, I just want to hear more of her.
Truly, one of the very best female singers of this generation.. I love her works, going to collect selected efforts...
I"am glad to have been born, during a time when we have good music....
I love her music. I particularly loved her naked and true cd. Its hard to find now.
For the more mature music lover she hit's all the right notes. She makes you think about life.
love her love her!!!
I love her smooth voice..i would like to see her in Los Angeles soon.
Lovey voice, can't wait to here more music from this artist

Randy is a very underrated artist!
I love Randy
Her pic looks like Janet Jackson. But the more i look at it I see that it's not.
robin.lattin
Very under rated; there should be an Unsung episode on Randy. She truly fits the bill.
Nice and slow I like that beat.
Only Anita Baker has a more distinctive voice than Randy.
Randall, FIRE/ICE, vwilson1031, and Tamika all got it right.
A true talent that should have been better appreciated by we the
true listeners of honest and heart felt rythyms here in the states.
If any one knows of her possibly doing a live performance somewhere
in the U.S. any time in the future, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE POST THE INFO.
RESPECTFULLY :

Randy always has had "It" -- A beautiful, distinct, consistent sound -- I was her neighbor and have been following her forever, beginning with her performances in the high school variety shows and local clubs in Cincinnati. I can't understand why she never made it "real big" --- Maybe she will someday concentrate on being an outstanding Jazz Vocalist ...
I wish her career had been as big as her talent.Under r a t e d by any measure."Wra p You Up" is my favorite.
I never get enough of Randi, her voice is so unique. Street Life is still my favorite housecleanin g music.
mikad923
hearing her beautiful voice always reminds me of growing up at my dads house...you could always hear Randy.....
My mom use to have the song Young Hearts Run Free on 45 inch. I love her voice .
I just love "Street Life". It brings me back to my youth.

My nephew from Seattle called me about a song I played in the 90's called Sailor Moon but could not recall the artist. He had the words but the title was wrong. I realize he was talking about Cajun Moon by Randy Crawford! He is ecstatic that I remember. Ms Crawford as she is now has that special voice you cannot forget. What a gift!
car salesman- she is a beautiful person,to match her voice!
I wish I could get to know her. She seem like such a beautiful person, and her voice is just amazing. Love you Ms. Crawford.
HER VOICE,WORDS AND MUSIC MAKE MY SOUL VIBRATE WITH NEW LIFE.
