Joe Sample has brought us outstanding piano ensemble work for nearly 30 years ever since he pulled forward from the remarkable Crusaders who trademarked a brand of soulful jazz and funky grooves ahead of their time. This album contiues to deliver totally deep down soulful rhythm and blues grooves that have been the frame work for his lush impressionistic harmonies and concise charismatic keyboard solos which have marked his signature style all his fans have been in love with for years. His melodies are always lyrical, we feel we can just about write our own words to his song, that's how he holds our interest, by refusing to go above our heads as listeners. Now and then he brings in fine jazz vocalists to add that extra human touch to his presentation , and the offerings of Lizz Wright are a delight, her smoky vocals like a warm blanket that complements his down to earth grooves. This album reminds me of his other fine work - "Old Places, Old Faces", which is outstanding in its metaphorical ability to take us to the places he has been. Joe is a gifted musical storyteller, and we never lose interest.
