5.0 out of 5 stars I discovered the phantatsic female Jazz singer Randy Crawford when I studied in the U.S. ...., 6 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Very Best of Randy Crawford (Audio CD)
......I discovered this female Jazz singer RANDY CRAWFORD when I was a student in the US in the 1980ies. Her music reminds me on some of the best years of my life when I was a young student in in the 1980ies in Boston (Harvard University),in Philadelphia (Wharton Business School) and in Palo Alto (Stanford University).

.....I travelled all over the US from East to West Coast and from North to South in my convertible car, I bought hundreds of US music LPs and CDs and DVDs. RANDY CRAWFORD has become one of my all-time favorite singers! - I moved from job to job in the following 25 years from 1985 to 2012 and all the US music LPs and CDs moved allover the world. RANDY CRAWFORD's music is still one of my all-time favorite female entertainers.

.................WHO is Randy Crawford?

..."Randy Crawford (born Veronica Crawford, February 18, 1952, Macon, Georgia) is an American jazz and R&B singer. She has been more successful in Europe than in the United States, where she has not entered the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo artist. She has enjoyed multiple top five hits in the UK, including her 1980 #2 hit, "One Day I'll Fly Away"...."

...."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 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, but was unable to score either a big R&B hit or major crossover smash, despite having one of the most readily identifiable voices and distinctive approaches of any contemporary female vocalist. She's been more successful overseas, particularly in England, where such singles as "Knocking on Heaven's Door," "Rainy Night in Georgia," and "Last Night at Danceland" have gotten universal acclaim."
