Command Performance

Joe Sample of the Crusaders has to be one of the baddest musicians in the land.  He manages to always take me away from my troubles and he captivates me with his artistry.  He's  a class act, never a follower always light years ahead of the masses.  I love this performance of 'Ashes to Ashes' one of his best in my opinion.  I love live instrumentation, it captures the true rawness of the original intent.  Set back and witness a miracle craftsman at his best.  It doesn't get any better than this.  Enjoy~


  1. Joe Sample is a perfectionist. I loved him since I was a little kid, he inspired me to play keyboards.

  2. always good stuff.

  3. I think his CD Ashes to Ashes is one of the all time classics, that ranks in the history books. It's a perfectionist piece.
