Joe Sample And The Soul Committee

One of the many jazzmen who started out playing hard bop but went electric during the fusion era, Joe Sample was, in the late '50s, a founding member of the Jazz Crusaders along with trombonist Wayne Henderson, tenor saxman Wilton Felder, and drummer Stix Hooper. The Crusaders' debt to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers wasn't hard to miss -- except that the L.A.-based unit had no trumpeter, and became known for its unique tenor/trombone front line. Sample, a hard-swinging player who could handle chordal and modal/scalar improvisation equally well, stuck to the acoustic piano during the Crusaders' early years -- but would place greater emphasis on electric keyboards when the band turned to jazz-funk in the early '70s and dropped "Jazz" from its name. Though he'd recorded as a trio pianist on 1969's obscure Fancy Dance, 1978's Rainbow Seeker was often described as his first album as a leader. In contrast to the gritty music the Crusaders became known for, Sample's own albums on MCA and, later, Warner Bros. and PRA have generally favored a very lyrical and introspective jazz-pop approach. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

Joe Sample is both a very smooth and subtle artist with plenty of emotionally charged pieces. Feel it!!!

Of Pandora's display of a lone lp/cd of Joe Sample's numerous work, I couldn't characterize it any better than did Keith McDonald Charles!
Had a partner who cued me to Joe sample more than 25 years ago. Bro' was right BF.
This is arguably, one of the best instrumental pop jazz albums ever recorded. I first heard this when Jazziz magazine sent me their cd sampler with this track on it. Supposedly inspired by the earthquake in the bay area in that time, the album had solid songs throughout. Not a bad track on it. A track called Dirty Rice, (I think) is also pretty cool. I've seen Joe live a few times and he plays his roots three piece jazz sets, but this is still my favorite by him.

I just can't believe Pandora has ONLY one lp/cd listed for Joe Sample ....YOU GUYS KILL ME!!!!***
