Their 1970 album Old Socks, New Shoes reached No. 90 on the album chart, and was their last as the Jazz Crusaders. The decision was taken to call the group simply the Crusaders, so as not to limit their scope and potential audience. After a second album with Chisa, Pass the Plate, 1971, and one album for the MoWest label Hollywood, 1972 they signed with Blue Thumb Records, where they remained until the late 1970s. Their recordings increasingly adopted a jazz-funk style. Rhapsody and Blues MCA, 1980. Live in Japan Crusaders, 1981 GRP, 1993. Standing Tall MCA, 1981
