On This Joe Sample Day

Written by [Anthony Dean-Harris]

This Monday, February 1, my favorite pianist, Joseph Leslie Sample, turns 71 years old. This is typically a bigger deal to me than it is to most people. I can get why. Most folks don’t get excited about jazz (but we here at Nextbop certainly are trying to change that). Most folks certainly don’t get excited about septuagenarians. But when every February comes around, the music of Joe Sample (his solo work, The Crusaders, backing Anita Baker, Michael Franks, Al Jarreau, Miles Davis, George Benson, Herb Alpert, Hugh Masekela, and a long line of others over an ongoing career spanning at least 40 years) is all I’ll play for that magical first day of the month.

[Listen to Aaron Parks in the Nextplayer]

Loved [Aaron Parks]'s Invisible Cinema? Wish you could play his songs? Well, we got his lead sheets! Aaron thought Nextbop would be a cool place to post these, so here you have it! Have a listen at his music while you're here and be on the lookout for Jame's Farm, his new collaborative project with Joshua Redman, Matt Penman and Eric Harland (they'll be touring Europe VERY shortly)!
