Jeff Lorber


If he were being accused of being too creative and trying too many new things, Jeff Lorber would have to plead guilty. You see, when it comes down to creating music that’s fresh and ground-breaking, Jeff Lorber feels right at home. Over thirty years after the R&B-Jazz-Fusion pioneer shook up the music world with his group The Jeff Lorber Fusion, the Philly-born keyboardist has managed to stay on the track of musical imagination to deliver over twenty jazz-fusion adventurous albums that have impacted the musical world around him. His stylish new album, HE HAD A HAT, includes a touch of Gospel, Fusion, and Smooth Jazz styles, while throwing in some Be-Bop and Swing on the side. Guest musicians on the album require no introduction…Abe Laboriel Jr, Kirk Whalum, Paul Jackson, Jr, Lenny Castro, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Randy Brecker, Gerald Albright, Tom Scott, Brian Bromberg, Hubert Laws, and Chris Botti. We highly recommend this new project because, quite simply, it has Grammy written all over it. Jeff Lorber is at his absolute best at every turn. Inside MusiCast is honored to welcome an absolute legend in Jazz and Fusion…..Jeff Lorber.

Jeff's playing speaks for itself. If you dig his studio albums(which I KNOW you will), go see this man live and be prepared to be amazed.
