Joe Sample & Lalah Hathaway

The daughter of the great Donny Hathaway, Lalah Hathaway made a good impression with her debut recording, Lalah Hathaway, in 1990. She not only displayed poise, confidence, and good technique, but was also versatile enough to do more than just light urban contemporary ballads. Her stage shows included jazz, pre-rock pop, and even gospel, and Hathaway later appeared on BET doing jazz and fusion. After her second and final album for Virgin, 1994's A Moment, she went on a lengthy hiatus, returning in 1999 with Joe Sample for The Song Lives On (GRP). The following decade and into the 2010s she released Outrun the Sky (Sanctuary, 2004), Self Portrait (Stax, 2008), and Where It All Begins (Stax, 2011) -- all fine albums involving collaborations with the likes of Mike City, Rahsaan Patterson, Rex Rideout, and Dre & Vidal. They established Hathaway as one of the finest adult contemporary R&B vocalists of the 2000s and 2010s. A 2013 collaboration with the band Snarky Puppy -- on a cover of Brenda Russell's "Something" -- won a 2014 Grammy Award in the category of Best R&B Performance. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

If I'm on a deserted island, I would want to have this album with me. One of my all time favorites.

Joe Sample has been a staple in my jazz collection since I was first introduced to his music many years ago. He continues to bring it after all these years. You go Joe!

That's a week bio. Joe is in a class by himself as far as I'm concerned. He's done some great albums. I would recommend Invitation to any fan. Pianist and arranger extraordinai r e !

Joe Sample's CARMEL album from 1980-81 is still a treasure!

Mr. Bernstein, you hit it on the head!! I also remember seeing the Jazz Crusaders in 1971 with a newcomer Patti Austin. Joe always had a smooth style of playing and with Lalah it is just heaven. Thank you Pandora.

I would never dare to minimize Joe as one dimensional but whenever I hear a Fender Rhodes or Wurlitzer electric piano played well I think of either Joe Sample or Bob James. Mr. Sample has a seasoned almost lyrical approach to the keyboard and I love to listen to him on electric piano. He is no slouch on a grand piano either... Just luv it, luv it

Joe hasn't changed a thing ! Still that smooth and elegant sound as if he were playing while you are eating dinner at the restaurant. (smile)

Joe always reminds me of my fathers piano playing. Big sound and very elusive on the key~boards. Trendy but throwback.

The music touches a deep spot in my emotional memory. When three generations of family were still alive and together. This melancholy goes right to the eyes and the tears flow. To me that's a stong sound.
