Format: Audio CD
"A spectacular greeting of the land and sea
Erupts into one of the definitive parallels
Of human and environmental life
She reflects the joys and tragedies of life
Through her evolving existence

She's a thousand love songs in one
As beautiful as a thousand women
A thousand infants
And a thousand old folks
She's a symphony of life
Here's a song for Carmel
And her sisters throughout the world" ~ Joe Sample ~ "Carmel-By-The-Sea"

Joe Sample is not only a great jazz pianist and composer but also a creative poet. This is my first Joe Sample album that turned me on to his wonderful music way back in the eighties. I upgraded it to a CD in the nineties when it first came out. This is one of his bestselling recordings and a tribute to the city of Carmel. Listening to this CD makes me want to visit Carmel again. Carmel-By-The-Sea is one of the most beautiful places in California. It has a lot to offer for visitors to enjoy--its pristine and virgin Carmel Beach, its lovely cottages, its parks and trails and there's the Sunset Center Theatre, which is the venue of many jazz, classical and cultural performances.

The seven tracks in this recording are all Mr. Sample's original compositions. To me, all the tracks are highlights and they're all magnificently performed by Mr. Sample and his back-up musicians. You'll love the bubbly melodies of "Carmel" and "Sunrise," the tuneful melodies of "Paintings" and "More Beautiful Each Day," the lovely rhythm of "A Rainy Day In Monterey," and the contemporary grooves in "Midnight And Mist," featuring Hubert Laws on solo flute.

A must-have not only to all Joe Sample fans but also to anyone who enjoys mellow jazz at its very best!

I bought the vinyl in the 80's and fell in love with it... Picked up the CD and was reintroduced to a classic! I hadn't listened to it in almost 10 years (since I put my records in storage) and now feel that I have lost many fine evenings of listening - which I will try to make up for over the next 10 years... enjoy!

Format: Audio CD
I purchased this album in while living in Carmel. The music brings to life one of the worlds most beautiful treasures, Carmel and the Monterey peninsula. The upbeat song "Cannery Row" takes the listener back to a time when Cannery Row was a bustling sardine industry capitol. "A Rainy day in Monterey" is a haunting soft melody where Joe sits down at his Fender Rhodes keyboard to express how he feels about Monterey. The electric piano sounds just like the rain drops that so often fall on the Monterey peninsula. It's truly one of the best jazz albums I've ever heard. I listen to it daily.

I purchased Carmel while living in California in the late '70's. I have listened to it virtually every day for over 20 years. It is my air. It is my water. No other set of music has ever affected me this way. Thank you, Joe Sample.

If you've ever cruised the California coastline and experienced

the breathtaking Monterey Bay are where Carmel thrives, you will

truly appreciate how Joe has captured its essence and its

spirit. Armed with spikey chord punches, impressionistic

harmonies and storytelling melodies, the listener is taken

on an exhilarating journey with support from backup musicians

that lay down wonderful contemporary grooves while Joe spins

his distinctive piano solo style. I love every tune on

this album, especially the love song quality of "More

Beautiful Each Day" and "Midnight and Mist". Also fun is

the barrelhouse blues quality of "Cannery Row". I only

wish the entire album was re-recorded with the modern

digital technology of today, I believe it would sound

even more remarkable!

This album is of the best ever produced by Joe Sample. I am a big fan of his music and his compositions. This album and "Old Places, Old faces" are Joe Sample at his best. This is a must own.

Joe Sample's most beautiful album.
I have never before and ever since heard anyone create such a vivid picture of the ocean, the sunrise, rainy days, sunrises.
Joe's playing instantly takes you there. You feel the salty water spit into your face, you watch the sunrise, you can even hear the rain tickling the ocean's surface. The mist will enfold you, makes you tell your love that she/he looks more beautiful each day.
What a marvel!

Amongst Joe Sample fans, Carmel is possibly one of the

favorite albums. The entire collection plays beautifully

from the first song to the last, a remarkable tapestry of

compositions capturing the life and the spirit of this

breathtaking California coastline area. The melodies are

memorable and beautifully performed, and this special

edition does a wonderful job of bringing out the highs and

lows, the different instrumental parts, giving the listener

an incredible high quality listening experience compared to

the regular edition. If you already love the Carmel album,

it is most definitely worth the investment to get this

edition into your collection!!
