Randy Crawford and Joe Sample first showed how well they worked together when Crawford sang with Sample’s then-band the Crusaders on the 1979 song “Street Life,” which has become a classic. Crawford and Sample have re-teamed for a collaboration album called Feeling Good, and on the optimistic Leslie Bricusse-Anthony Newley-penned title track, Crawford’s soaring vocal is complemented by Sample’s brisk staccato soloing and a steady driving rhythm provided by bassist Christian McBride and drummer Steve Gadd.
