earBuzz Review:
With vocals and pop songwriting that reminds us of a souped up jazz Little River Band, Crosswinds' CD, "Running Room", is a 17 song collection of both instrumental light jazz and pop songwriting compositions that land squarely in adult contemporary professionally produced jazz/pop. The key here is groove. The tracks lay strong and repeating foundations for the lead instruments, mostly jazz/rock guitar, sax, and vocals. The opening track, "I Call Her", is adult lyrical reality as the tune reveals, 'I call her when I need you'. The tune is an upbeat dedicated tune of confusion and heartache to the woman who is right, but isn't always. Track 2 is the most ambitious of the jazz instrumental tunes - as guitar and sax interplay gorgeously. It's a medium tempoed smooth jazz pleasure. Track 9, "You Look Like Picture", showcases guitarist, Steve Nichols, who gets to stretch out with his warm clean lead tone. The tune's atmosphere includes rotating key patches that are joyfully hollow with matching bells/xylophone tones. With a black velvet beat, "Crazy Little Girl Line Dancer", has an R&B hook that, despite the length of the title, works right. Track 13, "Miss You", is a ballad of longing - heartfelt and real. Nice stuff.
