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

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.

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 :
