This is review from Critical Jazz! - Brent Black


It might be late in 2011 but one album currently staking a
claim as one of the year’s best is the terrific ‘A Journey
Within Pt. 1’ by silky smooth keyboard player Demetrius
Nabors, aka ‘Krayon’. Despite a background in Christian
and Gospel music Nabors has taken to contemporary jazz
like a duck to water and, with eleven extremely eclectic self
penned tracks, fans of the genre might be excused for asking
just where he has been hiding. - Denis Poole of Smooth Jazz Therapy
