Roy Hargrove's Solo - Shade of Jade
Roy Hargrove's powerfully expressive solo on Shade of Jade, from his 1994 recording With the Tenors of Our Time. The legendary Joe Henderson is the featured tenor player on this track, as well as the piece's composer. The entire masterful album hosts one extraordinary performance after another. Go listen...
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!
