    Joe Sample ranks among the very top jazz pianists. A maestro in his own right, along with the likes of Don Pullen.

    Joe Gregg is brilliant showman, able to rouse the audience. The identity of the mega-caliber, he undeniably talented keyboardist, his dashing style of play is easily recognizable.

    Hate his solos from albums, on live shows it sounds a bit better, but those studio versions are horrible, zero spontaneity.
