CD Reviews

The Crusaders as they should be!
Allen Davis | Greensboro, NC USA | 10/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is music by The Crusaders as it should be. As a long time Joe Sample and Crusaders fans, it was good for me to enjoy what I would consider to be "vintage" Crusader stuff. It also did me a lot of good for me to hear my favorite bassist, Marcus Miller, added to the mix. He adds that touch of funk that only he can do. With Marcus thumpin' the bass, Joe tickling the ivory, and the rest of the guys doing their things, you can't help but love this piece. "Healing the Wounds" is probably the best Crusader cd to date. If you like the old Crusader stuff, you'll love this! It's great music from cover to cover."
" Crusaders Mission To Heal "

"The Crusaders always play Great Jazz and "Healing The Wounds" is no exception. Eight tracks of solid Jazz totaling nearly 50 minutes. Produced by bassist Marcus Miller. Recorded edited and digitally mixed in both New York City and Hollywood Ca.
A relaxing Cd of music that showcases many individual solos by the artist. Of particular interest are the saxophone and piano solos. Top Notch !!!!

Pessimisticism -- is a jazzy funk beat mix of Excellent sax and piano. The percussion parts are tastefully mixed and used sparingly. A good opening track !!

Mercy,Mercy,Mercy -- a slower version of this classic. An expressive moving sax solo as well as an impressive piano that blend superbly. Nicely tuned drums {tom toms} with dynamic fills during the breaks. "Check Out" Maynard Fergusons version of this same classic.

Little Things Mean Alot -- a little latin bossa nova happening here. Spotlight on the Bass guitar "Wow" !! Also features some rhythmic percussion and fine sax palying.

Cause Weve Ended As Lovers -- a Stevie Wonder hit done Crusader style. We finally get a chance to hear the guitarist. His tone is gritty but soulful and the same goes for the saxophone. Piano solo is a creative blend of stacatto and phrasing all in one.

Snake Dance -- Funk Rock Jazz all the way. Stand out piano, sax and bass guitar. A brisk "yet" cranky sounding guitar solo. Percussion parts get up front and personal.

Maputo -- a beautiful "but short" piano intro. The saxophone serenades us with the melody. This is a fun, brisk and lively song. Brings about a feeling of happiness. A walk down the beach or through your favorite park. "Got The Feeling"

Healing The Wounds -- a short drum/percussion intro. A smooth and gracious sax performance. Keyboards shine throughout. Especially the bass guitar and piano solos which are played together at the same time !!

Running Man -- Showcases intricate drumming and bass. Fancy bass drum foot work from drummer "Bubba" Bryant. Also features a piano solo with tonal chord structures. Great sax again and percussion technique that keeps the music flowing the way it should.

The Crusaders " Healing The Wounds " is a fine jazz effort worthy of our attention. "Let The Healing Begin" !!!!"

"Healing the wounds is jazz the way I like it to be...good sounds that come together and make an album that you don't mind listening to againa and again. If you are new to the Crusaders, here's one to start with. Sit back, relax, and let the good vibes on this good album take you away!"
