In the summer of 2021, Unseen Worlds organized a small tour for Sam Gendel: a ranch in the Texas hill country, a historic ballroom in Corpus Christi, under a bridge along the San Antonio River. It’s understandable you might not have been able to make it. Some die-hard fans and jazz-head surfers whose curiosity was piqued by a social media listing turned up, and Sam made a record to send you home with.


MOJO Magazine 350, November 2022

"In the jazz world, it feels like, more and more, we’re moving away from conventional studio recordings. That’s a refreshing thing. With Sam Gendel you’re getting a little window into a moment in time." - Tom Skinner (Sons of Kemet, The Smile)
