JOE SAMPLE, RANDY CRAWFORD & RICK BRAUN @ HENRIETTE DELILLE LEGACY CONCERT
Joe Sample will headline the 3rd Annual Henriette Delille Legacy Concert on September 15, 2007 at the Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston Island, Texas. The concert will also feature guest performances by the vocalist/singer Randy Crawford and smooth jazz trumpeter Rick Braun. Joe Sample and Randy Crawford are currently teamed on their new release, Feeling Good Sample’s latest release Feeling Good (PRA Records) featuring vocalist Randy Crawford marks a return collaboration between Sample and Crawford, who first worked together more than 30 years ago. Throughout this album the listener is drawn into the warm embrace of Joe and Randy’s musical heritage, a mixture of soul, jazz, gospel, pop, and a touch of the blues, a reflection of Sample’s desire to “live somewhere in the world where people hold onto their roots and their culture.” His 2002 release The Pecan Tree was also inspired by the music and culture of southeast Texas.
