Legendary keyboard player/composer Joe Sample makes his GRP/PRA Records debut with The Song Lives On. Featuring the soulful vocalist Lalah Hathaway, the collection gracefully combines completely new material, pop standards from Sample's youth, and treasures from his own songbook. 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. The Song Lives On reflects his unique approach in revisiting, via fresh arrangements, classic songs from distinct eras of his life.
"An uncommonly reflective and touching love note of an album... This unique coupling makes the entire album resonate with the joy of finding a true soulmate."
