Tonight I have a fantastic, trend setting, brand new album just released August 17th to begin playing for you.This is the Jeff Lorber Fusion’s album Impact which will for sure live up to its name. Lorber’s last album Prototype won a Grammy at this year’s award show. Fresh off his Grammy win, Jeff Lorber has continued as a trailblazing pianist, composer, producer and bandleader and has hit a career stride that shows no signs of slowing down. Believe me, their Grammy win was no accident as can easily be seen when you look the dazzling array of artists Lorber works with.
There is bassist Jimmy Haslip, a long time Lorber collaborator and a founding member of the Yellow Jackets. Also saxophonist Andy Snitzer who played with Paul Simon as well as with The Rolling Stones. In addition there is guitarist Paul Jackson Jr who played with Michael Jackson on several of his albums including Thriller. Paul Jackson Jr also played regularly on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show and on American Idol.
Several other outstanding musicians contributed to this project under Lorber’s direction.
More new releases from Eric Darius, David Garfield, Brian Simpson, Nils, Josh Vietti, and Michael Lington.
