A glorious piano solo...everyone there that night agreed that a man to watch out for is pianist John Crawford, a skillful and imaginative soloist”

John Childs, Jazzwise Magazine

“hypnotized by the enchanting piano playing of John Crawford”

paul j youngman www.vinilemania.net

“followed by John Crawford whose piano playing is a delight all through the record”

Dan Mather www.musicweb-international.com

“The piano solo by John Crawford deserves special mention...floats along beautifully with all the right notes in the right order - it's tasteful, uncluttered and musical Finding a Musical Director as talented as John Crawford (one of the finest pianists ever to set foot on a piano) is, however, a huge plus”

Mel Dean reviewing “Sangue Latino 3”

“John Crawford's piano solo on the same piece was built around repeated single notes so deftly played that he seemed to be mimicking a horn”

John Fordham, The Guardian, January 2005

“Pianist John Crawford had several impressive spots with his light-fingered runs, occasionally straying from the overall tone, though not excessively so, then subtly blending samba with reggae in a striking combination of creative timing and diverse rhythms.”

John Philips, November 2007
