“I was around a lot of jazz as a child, often going to see my granddad record with big bands and hearing him arrange music in the house. My grandma was always playing records and singing; the house was filled with jazz non stop everyday,” Sam recalls. “It’s something I’ve come to appreciate more and more as I’ve gotten older. I’ve always got Bill Evans and Miles Davis in heavy rotation at my house as well as new greats like Kamasi Washington. I think jazz is the greatest music ever and almost everything that I like stems from it in someway or another.”
