Pioneering composer, producer and contemporary Jazz keyboard legend Jeff Lorber makes his Peak Records debut this week with his new album Heard That.
Over three decades after breaking ground as leader of the pioneering Jeff Lorber Fusion, the Philly-born and bred musician keeps the soulful momentum going, collaborating brilliantly on pop, jazz, R&B and blues-influenced tracks and even harkening back a bit to his early Fusion heyday with one of urban jazz’s top hit makers and sonic architects, Rex Rideout.
Highlighted by the first single, a swinging, bluesy-brass twist on Amy Winehouse’s Grammy winning "Rehab," Heard That features a typically vibrant Lorber all-star guest list, including trumpet great Rick Braun, guitarist Paul Jackson Jr., saxman Gary Meek, bassist Alex Al, trumpeter Ron King, guitarist Darrell Crooks and Peak label mate and sax icon Gerald Albright.
Lorber has been touring all throughout 2008 as part of ‘Guitars & Saxes’ with the likes of Gerald Albright, Peak label mate Jessy J, Jeff Golub and Peter White.
Heard That is in stores now.
