My lady [Purple Disco machine re-edit] (2012)
There are three bands that have gone by the name “Crusaders.”
First was the 1970’s Jazz band.
Second is a European Oi band.
The Third is a Australian Garage surf band.
In 1960, following the demise of a few short-lived Houston-based groups, pianist Joe Sample, drummer Stix Hooper, saxophonist Wilton Felder and trombonist Wayne Henderson relocated to Los Angeles, CA. After changing their name to "The Jazz Crusaders," the group signed with Pacific Jazz Records, where they would remain throughout the 1960s.
