Joe Sample's Solo - Snowflake

You can find the original recording of this tune on Joe Sample's 1997 release Sample This, produced by George Duke and recorded at Ocean Way Studios in LA. Marcus Miller sits in on many tracks, although on this one Jay Anderson holds down the bass. To me, this solo is a master class in elegant rhythm...now go listen to the whole album!
