The Crusaders - Live at Montreux
Available on Qello Concerts
The Crusaders were one of the pioneers of jazz-funk music in the 1970s and have made a number of visits to Montreux over the years. This broadcast focuses on their performance from 2003 when the band were touring in support of their album 'Rural Renewal'. Founder members Joe Sample and Wilton Felder were joined in the line-up by Ray Parker Jr on guitar and the inimitable Randy Crawford on vocals. They delivered a set that spanned their career from early days up to their latest album capped with a stunning nine minute plus performance of their classic 'Street Life' and finished off with a fun rendition of Ray Parker Jr’s 'Ghostbusters'.
