The concept for this album came out of my shows in April of 2008 in the legendary Café Carlyle at the Carlyle Hotel in New York. Given the intimacy of the room – eighty seats – I presented the music in a more free, jazz-inflected style quite different from my traditional pop rhythm section format. It is that style which we have tried to recreate for you here.

 

My old friend and arranger, Chris Walden, has been wanting to produce an album for me in this manner for some time. Chris introduced me to these amazing musicians and the recording sessions were nothing short of magical.

 

I'm very pleased and excited with this approach to my work; I feel it presents the music with a freshness and honesty that lets the songs speak for themselves, while giving each player ample opportunity to bring his unique talent to the journey.

 

Enjoy.

Lyrics

 

Walking In Avalon, Christopher's seventh album release, is without a doubt his crowning achievement to date. Written and produced with Rob Meurer, and featuring multi-instrumentalist/co-producer Scott Frankfurt, the two-CD set is an utter delight for any connoisseur of intelligent popular music. CD one is a showcase for Cross' formidable vocal, instrumental, and compositional talents. This collection of perfectly-crafted songs explores celibration and aggravation, love and lust, focus and the lack thereof, the dreaded "R" word (relationships), the difficulty of hope, and some plain, good ol' storytelling. Never before in his career has Cross' music displayed more sophistication or his lyrics more pointed meaningfulness, yet a great sense of fun permeates the entire work. Amazing backing tracks created by Frankfurt and stunning orchestral settings by Jeremy Lubbock help to showcase the great Cross/Meurer songs as well as Christopher's hugely-underrated and consistently surprising guitar work.

 

The second album is a bonus for stalwart Cross fans, containing a 74-minute live concert recording in which Christopher performs virtually all of his earlier hits (including "Sailing," "Ride Like the Wind," "Arthur's Theme," and "Think of Laura") as well as a generous offering of his lesser-known but excellent mid-period songs. Through an very unfortunate printing error, the band credits for this concert were omitted from the CD notes. Besides Cross on vocals and guitar, featured are Rob Meurer (keyboards, dulcimer, vocals), Chas Thompson (bass, vocals), Gigi Worth (percussion, guitar, vocals), Kiki Ebsen (keyboards, vocals), and Jody Cortez (drums), with Joel Pe$kin on alto sax and a special guest appearance by Michael McDonald.

 

Note: Walking in Avalon is a double album package that contains Christopher's latest new studio album, and Greatest Hits Live album together. In late 1999, CMC re-released the package as two single album releases. The studio album is titled Red Room. And the hits live release is Christopher Cross - Greatest Hits Live.

Rendezvous

BMG Records - 1992

 

Lyrics

 

Christopher completes his break from the past with this, his fifth album, considered by many to be his finest collection of material to date. Available here for the first time in the U.S., this set of reflective, passionate songs stands as a shining labor of love. Written (primarily with Rob Meurer) and recorded during a time of intense personal and professional upheaval, Rendezvous presents a banquet of exquisite word-paintings set in a melange of captivating musical styles, sonically rich and rewarding. Featuring Christopher's current touring battery of Jody Cortez (drums) and Chas Thompson (bass) and also Eric Johnson, Larry Klein, Carlos Vega, Novi Novog, and two of the last recorded appearances of Jeff Porcaro. Contains the songs "Is There Something," written with Steve Dorff and Cynthia Weil, and the rocking "In the Blink of an Eye," both major hits abroad. Produced by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer.

Back of My Mind

Reprise - 1988

 

Purchase on iTunes

 

Lyrics

 

A transitional work in the truest sense, this fascinating fourth album finds Christopher straddling the brightest pop work of his past and the soul-searching writing that was to dominate his albums to come. Songs such as "Swept Away," written with John Bettis and Steve Dorff for a special episode of the hit TV series Growing Pains, and "Never Stop Believing," with a fine vocal turn by Fleetwood Mac veteran Christine McVie, sparkle with the soaring excellence of Cross' earlier successes. But a new writing collaboration with long-time cohort Rob Meurer produces a handful of songs bursting with the promise of things to come - contemplative, engaging works such as "Alibi" and the haunting title tune, an approach to music which Christopher would make his own on future albums. Back of My Mind also features "I Will (Take You Forever)," a duet with Frances Ruffelle of Les Miserables fame. Another Michael Omartian production.

Lyrics

 

Christopher takes a decidedly different approach on this, his third album, by venturing forth (back, actually) into a harder-rocking place. This time, in a nod to his more raucous formative musical years, he takes back all the guitar chores for himself, showcasing the exciting, blues-based riffing that delights fans at his live concerts to this day. Enriched by new writing partnerships with renowned lyricists John Bettis and Will Jennings, as well as the solid rhythm battery of John Robinson (drums) and Joe Chemay (bass), Every Turn of the World sets forth an intriguing array of up-tempo styles and moods, and includes a couple of classic Cross ballads for good measure. Produced, once again, by Michael Omartian.

Lyrics

 

In his gorgeous second release, Christopher takes a long look at relationships and their dissolution. At once introspective and spirited, the songs display a maturing, deeply-felt range of expression, and are a clear progression from his earlier work. Another star-studded effort featuring Art Garfunkel, Carl Wilson, Karla Bonoff, Steve Gadd, members of Toto (including Steve Lukather and the late, great Jeff Porcaro), first-album alumni Michael McDonald, Don Henley, and J.D. Souther, and a slew of L.A.'s finest session players. Another Page contains the hits, "Think of Laura," "All Right," and "No Time for Talk," and the cassette release features the smash title tune from the movie, Arthur, "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)." Produced by Michael Omartian.

Christopher's landmark debut album, winner of five Grammy© awards, including Best Album, Best Song ("Sailing"), and Best New Artist. Emerging, to the pleasant surprise of the music-loving world, on the heels of the disco and punk eras, this collection of perfectly-crafted and impeccably-performed songs redefined the concept of melodic pop. Featuring the production and keyboards of Michael Omartian, as well as Christopher's original Texas band of Rob Meurer (keyboards), Andy Salmon (bass), and Tommy Taylor (drums), and a stellar host of guests, including Michael McDonald, Don Henley, J.D. Souther, Larry Carlton, Nicolette Larson, and guitar wizard Eric Johnson in his first national recording appearance. Besides the Number One "Sailing," this album contains th e hits "Ride Like the Wind," "Never Be the Same," and "Say You'll Be Mine."
