Bucktunes Posted October 23, 2013 Share Posted October 23, 2013 This came up on his Facebook page a little while ago; "Due to an unexpected illness, the Joe Sample Trio, with Special Guest - Randy Crawford, will be unable to perform on October 25th, at the Paramount Theatre, Oakland, CA, as previously advertised. Mr. Sample was recently hospitalized with what appears to be a severe case of pneumonia. A surgical procedure to remove a build up of fluids in his lung was performed, and Mr. Sample remains hospitalized. Doctors have advised Mr. Sample to undergo an extended period of convalescence before he will be able to resume his professional schedule. Mr. Sample is unavailable for comment due to the aforementioned procedure. Ms. Crawford had this to say: Our hearts go out to Joe and wish him a speedy and healthy recovery so that we can return to performing together ASAP. I was so looking forward to performing in Oakland at the Paramount. It has been way too long since Ive visited our fans in the Bay Area, and I love the Paramount. Hopefully we can reschedule something as soon as Joe has recovered. Got him on my prayer list...Get well soon, Joe! ><> Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
