Soul Jazz from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: THE JAZZ CRUSADERS.
A portrait of four Texans in Los Angeles: Wilton Felder, Wayne Henderson, Joe Sample and Stix Hooper. Before they dropped the jazz in their name and moved on as the popular Crusaders, they had already had a decade of spicy hard bop and soul jazz behind them. Tonight a selection of their various performances at Pacific Jazz.
