Randy Crawford and Joe Sample Are Feeling Good About New CD

February Release on PRA Records Marks Reunion of Vocalist and Pianist More Than 30 Years After 'Street Life' CD Launched Worldwide 'Literally' with December NASA Mission

On Tuesday, February 20, 2007 PRA Records will release Feeling Good, a new album from Randy Crawford and Joe Sample. This Tommy LiPuma-produced CD marks a return collaboration between vocalist Crawford and pianist Sample who first worked together more than 30 years ago...

From their interpretation of Peter Gabriel's "Lovetown" to the Latin-flavored "Rio De Janeiro Blue," to a modernly funky but also softened reading of "See Line Woman," Sample's work on the keys surrounds, highlights, and compliments Crawford's voice exquisitely. Some of the other covers chosen for this album include a seductive take on Billie Holiday's "Tell Me More and More and Then Some," a breezy run through "Everybody's Talking," the tune made famous by Harry Nilsson and the film Midnight Cowboy, and a heartfelt version of "When I Need You," written by Albert Hammond and Carol Bayer Sager.
