Although he's a native Houstonian, soul-jazz keyboard veteran and founding Jazz Crusader Joe Sample comes to Blue Note with an outfit custom-tailored to show off his affinity for Big Easy culture. His slick combo includes singer-guitarist Ray Parker Jr. (yes, he of the Ghostbusters hit theme song), but accordion master CJ Chenier and NOLA guitar hero June Yamagishi are sure to provide some authentic roux to Sample's gumbo.
