I've just come across Hank Crawford and I am really liking the couple of tracks I've heard, but where to start? Any definitive albums or tracks that you'd recommend I kick off with?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

I'm a big fan of Hank Crawford and I own several of his albums including the one below, and I would say any album is great to listen to, but here's a good starting point... from the early days to the later stuff of the 1980s and early 1990s. Big influence on David Sanborn, Eric Marienthal, Edgar Winter.

Enjoy!

Hi Greg,

Thanks, that's brilliant, it sounds like a great first step into the world of Hank Crawford... but the link says:
Currently unavailable.
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
...well there was only one left, you didn't think I was going to hang around did you ;}

Looking forward to post to arrive.

Thanks again,

Chris

Hi Chris,

When I posted the link there was one available for approx. 14 quid - I hope you got that one - I looked this morning and they're retailing for 44 quid to 60 quid (!?)...

here's some other stuff you maybe interested in...

There's a blues album he did with Jimmy McGriff- the hammond organ player- that's great, sorry- can't remember the name but it should be easy enough to track down

Soul Survivors.

It's available on Emusic.

I have "Roadhouse Symphony" on vinyl, some tracks are that 80s naff soul (a la Wilton Felder), but still I just love his (and W.Felder's!!!) sound and his groove, just one of the great R&B altos ever!

Can anyone recommend any good H.Crawford solos with the Ray Charles band?
Cheers,
M.

Hi Greg,

I'm now listening to that album (I got the £14 one), and it's fantastic, I do wish I'd payed attention to him much earlier, there is so much to appreciate in his playing. Funnily enough the both CDs and the cover are signed by someone, still trying to work out if it's someone notable and I can't really make it out.

Thanks again for pointing me towards this album,

Chris

I've spent a few evenings going through old episodes of "Night Music" on YouTube. It seems to have been the template for Later with Jools Holland but with a very New York sensibility (lots of jazz, world music and the artier end of rock music). Lots of absolutely superb performances to enjoy there.... The stunningly good Leonard Cohen & Sonny Rollins one is from there, Pharoah Sanders and Sanborn duetting, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers back in the day they were absolutely deranged etc etc....
