Founding member of the "Jazz Crusaders" pianist Joe Sample formed the group while he was a student at Texas Southern University during the late '50s inspired by Art Blakey's "Jazz Messegers."
He left school in 1961 and moved to Los Angeles with his band mates, releasing their first album "Freedom Sounds" later that year.
Sample has had a successful solo career since the early 1980s and has made guest appearances on recording of other artists including Miles Davis.
He remained a part of the "Jazz Crusaders" until their final album in 1991.
That's how we grow.
