To fans of the Crusaders (or Jazz Crusaders) back in the 1970â€™s and 1980â€™s, Joe Sample needs no introduction. His writing and keyboard work was the heart and soul of the group; without Joe Sample, there would have been no Crusaders. So, it should come as no surprise that Joe Sample has enjoyed the most successful solo career of all the original band members. While he has had several good releases following Ashes to Ashes, I personally view this CD as his last â€œgreatâ€ release, on par with some of his hugely successful late 1970â€™s solo releases (like Rainbow Seeker). This is one of those CDâ€™s on my â€œsit back and relaxâ€ list, and thatâ€™s a pretty short list for me. Discuss "Joe Sample Ashes to Ashes (1990) CD Review" here. Read the article.
