Nice new smooth jazz album
Now Playing: on www.RADIOnuages.com
Topic: David Crawford
Welcome to Shangri-la... David Crawford's musical, exotic utopia featuring sweet jazz flute, smooth grooves and tasty arrangements and production. I have always found that jazz flute adds an element of tranquility and depth to the music genre. David Crawford is no stranger to jazzing up the music scene. This distinguished flutist mesmerizes and captivates on SHANGRI-LA, his second solo release for Jazzer Inc., with a consistent smooth jam that conjures up white linen, turquoise waters, bleached sandy beaches, bright sunbrellas, tropical drinks and swaying palm trees. This is a musical excursion to the tropics. We expect big things from this delightful summer release. Escape to David Crawford's SHANGRI-LA and fall into a listening environment that takes you to a faraway haven of eternal groove. ~ SANDY SHORE Available at Amazon.com | Hear it on www.RADIOnuages.com

An Easy Spoonful of Tasty Jazz
Reviewer: Capt. Christopher
Pan started something...David Crawford carries on the tradition. You'll be transported to a magical forest or sunny beaches by the soft & jazzy lilt of this accomplished flautist & his cohorts. Give Shangri-La a listen. it's a welcome change from more aggressive beats on the pop charts.

A Jazzy Fusion of Rhythmic Melody
