Bob Crawford, born in the Bronx, NY, is one of those rare people combining musicality, scholarship, and business acumen into one seamless individual. After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1971 (Phi Beta Kappa/Magna cum laude) Bob embarked on his musical career full time.
From being the Musical Director, Guitarist, and Vocalist for the National Company of Paul Sills’ “Story Theatre”(1972-3) to the publishing of his book “Symmetric Cycles” by RMCO MUSIC, Bob has been actively involved in songwriting, arranging, producing, and studio work as a guitarist and vocalist for the past 30 years.
“Very rarely does a book on advanced improvisation come to
be published that makes sense. Bob Crawford, whom I have had
the pleasure to have worked with professionally and known
personally for over 30 years, has written just such a book.
If you are a true musician and understand “movement of
sound” you will certainly learn and enjoy from his newest
venture into the world of improvising/composing in
“Symmetric Cycles”… Read and learn from this master
Guitarist and Teacher.”
