H2O is the third studio album by Tony Craddock, Jr. (released under his band name Tony Craddock, Jr. & Cold Front). H2O is rooted in contemporary jazz and has little bit of something for everybody, from inspirational R&B and pop, to Latin jazz and gospel. The album is also produced by chart-topping jazz guitarist Ken Navarro and features Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum on a soul-stirring rendition of “Amazing Grace.”
Listen to the radio single “Living Water” (feat. Ken Navarro), which is now playing on Sirius XM Watercolors, Music Choice Smooth Jazz, and more than 30 radio stations in the United States, United Kingdom and Poland.
