Carnival city’s big top area was graced for the second time this year by composer and musician Joe Sample who delighted the jam packed arena with his pianistic mastery accompanied by his ensemble.
Together they warmed up the crowd who awaited the arrival of Sample’s musical soul-mate Randy Crawford.
Duo Sample and Crawford have been collaborating musically since their first hit together Street Life in 1979.
Ms Crawford was greeted by thunderous audience applause and did not disappoint as her incredible voice wove its way through the audience.
Although we were not permitted to record, the audience sang along with Crawford when she performed hits One day I’ll fly away, Almars and Rainy Night in Georgia to mention a few.
