“With his new effort, Crawford amazingly mixes, meshes and mingles musical genres in a lusciously seductive terrain he calls "Urban Jazz / My Story." "Urban Jazz / My Story," on Hydro 6 Records, sweeps across the textures of jazz, funk, R&B, pop and hip hop and morphs into a musical collage of enchanting innovation and interpretation.”

“Los inicios musicales del compositor y bajista Anthony Crawford datan del año 2.000. El bajista no dudo ni un segundo y lo tuvo claro, voló a la ciudad de Los Angeles y participó como músico en la Convención Nacional de los Demócratas, liderados en aquel entonces por el expresidente Bill Clinton. Después de esta aparición estelar todo iría muy rápido; anuncio publicitario para la cadena de comida rápida Burger King en compañia de la megaestrella del baloncesto Shaquille O´Neal, abandera la formación musical denominada “Shalmor”, se une a la banda del vocalista Howard Hewett y lanzamiento de su primera producción discográfica que tituló genéricamente “Satisfied”. Realmente impresionante la meteórica carrera de este joven músico. Ahora y siguiendo la estela del éxito nos presenta su nuevo proyecto musical que titula “Urban Jazz” y en el que una vez más se pone de manifiesto la originalidad y calidad de este excelente músico.”

“Well, the primary goal behind, "Urban Jazz," is to approach a solo bass record with a pop-ish urban feel and, at the same time, bring fresh original music that everyone can enjoy.”

“Meet Anthony Crawford, our player in the spotlight for November 10th, 2009.”

"I’ve been looking forward to listening to Anthony’s latest release since he began working on it, and I was not disappointed in any way! This time around, “AC” brings an absolutely brutal (yet perfect) blend of “hip-hop meets great changes”, all of which features his blistering and very tone-y playing! Anthony is in wonderfully devastating form as bassist and writer! Great tone. Great presentation. Great tunes."

"Ultimately, Anthony Crawford delivers the ‘goods’ on Urban Jazz - My Story. He attempts to crossover and showcase his love and appreciation for multiple styles of music, never alienating his jazz base. Most notably, his musicianship as a bassist is nothing short of awe-inspiring; technically, Crawford is a ‘wizard’. Sound and interesting material, a unique crossover approach, and top-notch musicianship make Urban Jazz - My Story the successful project that it is. Highly recommended."

“  "Anthony Crawford has released Urban Jazz - My Story, his second album as a leader. The effort follows up on 2010’s Urban Jazz and continues his style of combining hip hop, pop, and jazz. My Story takes a more lyrical approach and features a stacked list of personnel that includes Frank McComb, Dave Weckl, Eric Darius, Ruslan Sirota and others."”
