Legends
Marcus, Joe Sample, Eric Clapton, Steve Gadd, and David Sanborn


In July 1997, Legends had 11 days concerts for 10 major European Jazz Festivals.
We had rumour that also studio album will be out at the time, but it was never happened...
However, we can enjoy their live performance of the Montreux Jazz Festival as an offcial DVD.

David began to say that he would like to make recording with Marcus and Joe,
and naturally as a drummer Steve came and after it, Marcus let Eric join the band, and finally they decided to have gigs in Europe
In May, these super artists except Eric started to play together ,record and at the end of month, Eric joined.
And one month later, when was the end of June, they gethered at Montreux again to have last rehearsal for several days for coming gigs.
Due to their tight schdules, they never played together again...
In a regrettable thing,as Joe passed away in Septermber 2014, the reunion became impossible perfectly
