Album Notes
: With vocals and pop songwriting that reminds us of a souped up jazz Little River Band, Crosswinds' CD, "Running Room", is a 17 song collection of both instrumental light jazz and pop songwriting compositions that land squarely in adult contemporary professionally produced jazz/pop. The key here is groove. The tracks lay strong and repeating foundations for the lead instruments, mostly jazz/rock guitar, sax, and vocals. The opening track, "I Call Her", is adult lyrical reality as the tune reveals, 'I call her when I need you'. The tune is an upbeat dedicated tune of confusion and heartache to the woman who is right, but isn't always. Track 2 is the most ambitious of the jazz instrumental tunes - as guitar and sax interplay gorgeously. It's a medium tempoed smooth jazz pleasure. Track 9, "You Look Like Picture", showcases guitarist, Steve Nichols, who gets to stretch out with his warm clean lead tone. The tune's atmosphere includes rotating key patches that are joyfully hollow with matching bells/xylophone tones. With a black velvet beat, "Crazy Little Girl Line Dancer", has an R&B hook that, despite the length of the title, works right. Track 13, "Miss You", is a ballad of longing - heartfelt and real. Nice stuff.

Steve Nichols - Perfectionist on the guitar, wielding sounds from musical sources as diverse as rock, classical, jazz, Latin, blues, and country. Steve has been called upon to work as a studio musician for the recording industry in Los Angeles and throughout the western states.

Charlie Daniels,Lou Rawls,Barney Kessel,Bellamy Bros.,John Conley,CCR Revisted,Billy Cobham,John Anderson,Patty Lovelace and Eddie Raven to mention just a few.

On Dick Clark's television show "Where the Action Is", Paul entertained with his group "The Hardtimes", and also with "Paul Revere & the Raiders". Paul is the original drummer for "Gary Puckett & the Union Gap," earning him four gold records and two gold albums.

Ron Bell - A seasoned performer who has released original recordings, toured with top performers,Bill Medley,Stevie Wonder,Gary Pucket,Helen Ready,Little Anthony and the Imperials,Tommy Roe, and recorded sound tracks for both cinema and television. Ron has performed from the east cost to the west coast at such notable venues as Disneyland and the Whiskey A-Go-Go.

Pat Burke -
From playing drums as a young guest artist with the Stan Kenton Orchestra in 1968 to playing vibes on Bobby Caldwell's new CD, Patrick has been in the music scene most of his life.
