Crusaders Of The Jazz!!

Remember me mentioning The Jazz Crusaders in the recent Wayne Henderson post? Here is a live performance at The Lighthouse '62. I love The JC's. As a musical unit, they were unstoppable. Just listen to the video clip! They were another act out of Houston, TX (named The Swingsters) but soon relocated to L.A. with a new name, and shortly a contract with Pacific Jazz. The Jazz Crusaders were: Joe Sample, Wayne Henderson, Nesbert "Stix" Hooper, and Wilton Felder. Now, since it is '62 the style is appropriate for that era. I usually post drops from the late '60's to mid 70's. Though, good jazz is good jazz is good jazz, right?
