Will Crain, 2009, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: funk
O’s Notes: Wilford Crain plays keyboards and leads a funky smooth jazz ensemble with Walter McKinney (g), Theron Brison (b) and Nathaniel Scott II (d). Rodney Taylor adds sax on three of the ten selections notably “Just Cruzin” and “Think About It”. All of the compositions were written, arranged and produced by Crain. We liked Brison’s powerful thumping bass on “Traffic” and his solo on “Leaving”, two of the better selections. We also liked the Latin beats and McKinney’s work on guitar for “Love Light”, the best song of the set.
