I am a big Joe Sample fan and that's why I bought the album despite the poor reviews. Joe doesn't feature on all of the tracks as he sadly passed away before the album was finished. However, the musicians and arrangements are all "in the spirit" of a Joe Sample album.
I really don't understand why this has had such poor reviews. The worst thing about the album is the cover - it looks like a cheap CD you'd expect to see in a discount shop. Ignore the cover, play the music and enjoy the arrangements, orchestration, musicianship and India's vocals (plus guests).
Purchased this on the understanding it was a Joe Sample record.He is only on 5 tracks [he died ] The rest of the album is poor and india.aries' singing is all over the place.False emotion and uncalled for drama grates in the extreme
