Jeff Lorber Fusion
October 27, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm¥160
Known for his smooth style, weaving together elements of funk, R&B, rock, and electric jazz, keyboardist Jeff Lorber helped pioneer the post-fusion sound of contemporary jazz. Emerging on the scene in the late ’70s, Lorber quickly established himself as a leader at the forefront of the electric jazz movement, issuing albums with his group the Jeff Lorber Fusion like 1978’s Soft Space (featuring Chick Corea) and 1977’s Water Sign. He scored a Grammy nomination for his 1985 song “Pacific Coast Highway,” an accolade that marked his rise into more commercial crossover jazz, culminating in 1986’s Private Passion. Following an extended period as a producer, Lorber returned to regular recording in the ’90s, and has since balanced his time between solo albums like 2007’s He Had a Hat and productions with his fusion trio like 2017’s Grammy-winning Prototype.
