Davell Crawford

Davell Crawford is an exuberant, flamboyant performer known as "the piano prince of New Orleans." Stylistically, he's a happy chameleon, offering blues, jazz both modern and traditional, lots of gospel, country music, funk, and plenty of the rollicking old-school R&B for which the Crescent City is justly famous. Fats Domino, Ray Charles, James Booker, Dr. John, Mahalia Jackson, and his own grandfather -- minor legend, James "Sugarboy" Crawford, who penned "Iko Iko" -- are among Davell's many inspirations. In addition to his piano prowess, Crawford is a fine organist and a frankly amazing singer, a former child prodigy whom the late, great Ruth Brown called, "my little genius." Tom Surowicz
