He makes that piano sing!

"Joe Sample stepped away from the style of the Crusaders and into his own with this beautiful CD. The playing is crisp and exact and the songs flow very well. The songs take you through different styles of music, yet they blend very well. "Free Yourself", "Black and White" and "Hippies on the Corner" will make your head nod without even realizing it. "Miles of Blue " does the same thing. My favorite cut is "Angels on my mind". Its a beautiful song that makes you sink back into your seat and listen to it one more time. If you listen closely, you can hear Joe humming on this one. Pick it up!"
Excellent music from beginning to end!

"This album could have been titled "Old Places, Old Faces,
Suite" It is the most cohesive collection of compositions
I have heard from a recording artist in a long time.
Read the liner note descriptions of each tune, it is Joe's
inspiration for every selection, and a diary of the most
significant impressions in his life. His reflections make
each piece even more meaningful and interesting. The tracks
are tight and his signature style is in top form! A must have!!"
Perhaps His Best CD, at least in the last 20 years

"When it comes to music, especially when it comes to Mr. Sample, this album is what I set as the standard. There is excellence in ever facet of this album. "Old Places Old Faces" creates a mood that cannot be avoided. It is filled with spirit that other artists couldn't touch, and that Sample probably couldn't touch before 1995. It is an album filled with pain, love, beauty, revelation, and most importantly, growth. The listener can hear Sample reflect as he lays his hands on the keys. The compositions here are the most expressive that Sample has written in some time. One can tell that this album wasn't released to make money, get airplay, or propel a concert tour. This album was made to work out issues and share his feelings. It's this kind of emotion that the listener need to take part of, and to look back on this album time and time again. This is, in this writer's opinion, Joe Sample's best work."
