The Bruce Katz Band's Crescent Crawl is receiving its first ever vinyl reissue. Out-of-print since the original 1992 AudioQuest Music release, the album has become the label's most sought-after record. The reissue, pressed on 180 gram vinyl at RTI, is a limited edition of 500 pieces with mastering and lacquers by Bernie Grundman – who handled the recording's original mastering duties. A cherished album in the audiophile blues community; original copies of the vinyl release have been commanding hundreds of dollars across the internet.

Bruce Katz is prolific on the keys. A five-time nominee for the Blues Music Award for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year", Katz has performed on over 70 albums and toured with Gregg Allman, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard and John Hammond. In 1992, after many years as a side-man, Katz stepped out for his debut with Crescent Crawl. The all-instrumental album, featuring Katz on both piano and Hammond B-3 organ, blurred the line between blues and jazz thanks in part to the use of an upright bass.

"Amazing" is the only way to describe Bruce Katz's piano and Hammond B-3 organ playing. He has awesome technique along with that important "something extra" - soul. Get acquainted with one of the best new bands in jazz!

"This disc is about loose definitions of blues and jazz, strong grooves, and, first and foremost, improvisation -- Just check out the Irish jig that suddenly dances from Bob Malach's sax on 'One Way Ticket'!" - AllMusic

"Eclectic keyboardist Bruce Katz sets no limits on his imagination as he rocks the Hammond organ or tickles the piano." - Tom Krehbiel, CD Review, June 1993

"I'm tellin' ya, he's downhome and uptown all at once, and that's a winning combination." - The Boston Phoenix, July 9, 1993
