Wild Blue Herons

Born:

Wild Blue Herons (WBH) are Bill Sample and Darlene Cooper. They play mostly groove-oriented jazz. It’s a little bit hip, a bit cool, a bit smoky, a bit bluesy…But very much ACCESSIBLE. They perform original songs and select standards, ranging from funk to blues to R & B but with a jazz twist and a definite gospel influence. Their songs are filled with themes of love and social consciousness.

They found an instant connection in their musical styles, love of theory, complex chords, and groove
