Wild Blue Herons

You & I (Independent)

Long-time collaborators turned husband-and-wife, Bill Sample (piano) and Darlene Cooper (vocals) present their latest musical adventure as Wild Blue Herons: a collection of standards inspired by the great women of jazz.
The Vancouver-based duo have a deep history in music: Bill has been an in-demand sideman for almost 50 years, working as musical director & keyboard player for the legendary David Foster, whilst Darlene has built a reputation not just as an go-to jazz singer, but an educator, choral conductor and session musician too.
“You & I” is being released in CD, Vinyl and digital formats.
