You have probably heard Joe Sample and the Crusaders; however, "Spellbound" is nothing like it.
Much better; it is probably Sample's finest recording until this date.
Joined by Al Jarreau and Michael Franks on Vocals; Omar Hakim on Drums and Marcus Miller on Bass; JS delivers a distinctive and amazing groovy Crossover, Soul Jazz album.
How wrong can you be adding this CD to your collection?
Highly recommended.

This CD is great from start to finish. The title track and his collaboration with Al Jareau on "Somehow our love suvives" is just too good to turn off. Take 6 gives a wonderful vocal assist with the track, "U-turn" and the same can be said for Michael Franks collaboration on "Leading me back to you". But it's the magic keyboard playing of Sample that you will not soon forget. Buy it..Enjoy it!!

Working in my office....driving a short or long trip or just unwinding/chilling out, Joe Sample's "Spellbound" is perfect for all "occasions".
Joe's style is very classy, yet earthy...sophisticated, yet playful...sensuous and alluring...he will ALWAYS be my favorite jazz pianist.

Joe Sample has taken many styles and combined them into an excellent jazz album that speaks for itself. From the fresh and innovative sounds of "Seven Years of Good Luck" and "Spellbound" to the up-tempo vocal "U-Turn" (performed by Take 6), the music takes you on a journey far from your circumstances. The other vocal tunes feature Al Jarreau on "Somehow Our Love Survives" and Michael Franks on "Leading Me Back To You". The popularity of these two pieces over the years still means that they can be heard on the radio over and over. My favorite, "Sermonized", constantly puts me in a cool, relaxed mood. I can be found listening to it several times in a row just because of the interest with moving 5ths in the bass line. This is definitely an album to have in your jazz collection. Very few jazz CD's have this many hits and just good tunes on the same disc. BUY IT!

When I first purchased this project in 1989, it was around the time "Take 6" wowed several segments of music (Gospel, Jazz, R&B, Pop, etc.) with their first release titled the same (Take 6).
These young men sounded FANTASTIC all alone (it is said voice is the best instrument), but to combine them with the tantalizing tones of Joe Sample on the song "U Turn" is an endless treat!
Another favorite is "Somehow Our Love Survives" with Al Jarreau.
He's another who utilizes his "instrument" of voice delightfully.
Joe, "U Turn" me on with your enchanting piano!

This CD(album) is totally like no other. By listening to this collection of soulful jazz, along with great vocals by Al Jarreau and Michael Franks, JOE SAMPLE can do no wrong. I never heard of him until I found out he worked with SIMPLY RED(Mick Hucknull) on their NEW FLAME album.
Believe it or not, Joe's album was released in March of 1989 and Simply Red's was released in April of 1989--quite a venue with these 2 GREAT albums around the same time.
In fact, Sample's style blends perfectly with Simply Red's and vice-versa. But SPELLBOUND is just that, spellbinding--fresh, crisp, smooth and free as a breeze(GEORGE BENSON?) His piano can fly through any
composition and/or style of music. Also, U-TURN is an excellent romantic
piece of piano, strings and beautiful vocals. Either way, this CD can
bring you to any place you wish to go. A real gem!!!

I think Joe Sample is one of the most talented musical artist of our time.This Spellbound CD is a true reflection of his talent.His collaborations with so many great artist on this CD like Al Jarreau, Michael Franks, Take Six shows his ability to put together a great flawless project with so many wonderful sounds. There is something for all to enjoy on this CD. I will listen to it for years to come. I simply just love it I am sure you will too.

is what you'll be listening to this CD. This is one of the three CD's Joe made in the late '80's/early '90's that defined for me "beautiful music." This album, released in 1989, incorporates vocals along with the lovely instrumentals Joe creates for this musical masterpiece. Favorites are "U-Turn," (featuring stellar vocals by Take 6), "Somehow Our Love Survives," (featuring Al Jarreau, one of the greatest jazz vocalists alive) and the mellow sweetness of Michael Franks on "Leading Me Back to You." Of the instrumentals, "All God's Children" is my favorite. Had a hard day? Put this on as the third CD in your changer (start off with "Ashes to Ashes" then go to "Invitation") and just let the combination of the three CD's take you away for a while. By playing this one third, you're getting ready to do whatever it is you need to with a clear mind and a song in your heart for the rest of the evening. BEAUTIFUL!
