Two full live concert recordings, one featuring the McCoy Tyner quartet, and another with Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, and Kai Winding. This is post hard-bop fusion, if you will, that stays close to its hard-bop roots while continuing to push the boundaries. Challenging, yet accessible, and very enjoyable.

Your Music Joe Sample

1:59:22 minutes (109.28 MB)

Joe Sample passed away this month, so, in commemoration we bring you two full hours of his music. Although his later works kind of bordered on "smooth jazz", which I consider to be an abomination, he steered clear of that watered-down soulless drivel, copying only some of the sounds, and utilizing "cross-over" musicians like David Sanborn. Joe Sample was schooled in the "hard-bop" style of Jazz and he maintained a funky edge. So, while this may be considered kind of "light" and "slick", compared to the kinds of Jazz I usually favor on this program, it is still expressive and original, and undeniably skilled.
