@Verve : A founding member of the influential jazz funk combo The Crusaders (originally the Jazz Crusaders) and a pioneer of contemporary jazz piano, Sample reaches back to the primary sources of jazz and soul music to create his personal interpretations of classics.
@ last.fm : He was one of the founding members of the Swingsters, a band which evolved into The Modern Jazz Sextet and later The Jazz Crusaders. The band became simply The Crusaders in 1971. He remained a part of the group until its final album in 1991
