New Orleans has also birthed more great piano players than any other city in the world.
Davell Crawford, an all-around musical sensation, is one of the true wonders of the contemporary Crescent City music scene. Bill Taylor from Blues Access proclaims, "Plain and simple, Davell Crawford is one of the most talented musicians alive!"
Also known as the "Prince of New Orleans," Despite his age, he has for years been a major force in American Roots Music. He has traveled, recorded, and taught the importance of music not only from New Orleans, but true Roots music from Traditional Jazz, to Gospel, Funk and R&B. He kept the music true while adding a little freshness and vitality.
As a true roots musician, he shoots out from his deep gospel roots to incorporate the entire piano tradition from R & B to Blues, Soul and Funk.
Davell Crawford's music is for real from the first note to the last. He has hailed as the gatekeeper of the New Orleans piano legacy, following Professor Longhair and James Booker. At the very least, he fulfills the bill only because he's an original stylist rather than a copier.
