On Saturday, April 3rd, 2003 at 8PM & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with contemporary jazz/fusion keyboardist and founding member of the ground- breaking fusion ensemble The Crusaders, JOE SAMPLE.

Joe Sample has entertained for more than four decades, first as a founding member of the ground-breaking fusion ensemble The Crusaders, and since the late 70’s, as a popular solo contemporary jazz artist. Sample began playing piano at age five and rooted himself in many different musical genres including gospel, soul, bebop, blues, Latin and classical music. Like many jazzman of his time, Sample started out playing hard bop, but went electric during the fusion era.

Along with trombonist Wayne Henderson, tenor saxophonist Wilton Felder and drummer Stix Hooper, Joe Sample launched The Jazz Crusaders in the late 50’s. Joe Sample focused on the acoustic piano during The Crusader’s early years, but placed greater emphasis on electric keyboards when the band turned to jazz/funk in the early 70’s and dropped the “Jazz” from its name. His recordings include Carmel, Voices in the Rain, Ashes to Ashes, Invitation, Old Places Old Faces, and of course, the George Duke produced Sample This. His newest release is The Pecan Tree.

Tickets for this performance are $37.50 ($28.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
