2005 Nils Landgren & Joe Sample – Creole Love Call

Creole Love Call is an album from Nils Landgren and Joe Sample, released in 2005.

Nils Landgren and Joe Sample have known each other for at least 20 years, from when Nils accidentally found himself in the middle of a recording session of The Crusaders in Los Angeles and then played together with Randy Crawford in Santa Barbara the following summer. Years later, after three of the original Crusaders got back together in 2003, Joe Sample invited Nils at the beginning of 2005 to join him on a major Japan tour – and thus Creole Love Call was sealed with a simple handshake..
