Among with the usual mix of new and classic tunes I've included a short tribute to the man pictured above, Joe Sample. He is most known for his work with the (Jazz) Crusaders, but has worked with people as varied as Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis and Michael Franks. The Average White Band tune "Put It Where You Want It" is a cover of Joe's tune written for the Crusaders and the Michael Franks track "Chain Reaction" is another Crusaders song. Mr. Sample passed away recently and has been a very influential person in my musical development.
Take a look at a couple videos where the man speaks for himself.
