UJC and The McConnell Arts Center invite you to join us for a magical evening of music featuring legendary jazz/fusion composer/keyboardist Jeff Lorber!

One of the pioneers of the musical format known today as contemporary or smooth jazz, Jeff Lorber has been an icon for the fusion of Jazz, Pop, Funk, and R&B genres for more than three decades. A Grammy nominated composer and artist, Jeff Lorber continues to break new ground with his signature combination of unique melodies, improvisation, and deep pocket grooves on his latest chart topping release, “Hacienda”.

Columbus’ own Urban Jazz Coalition will complete this dynamic musical package and perform their own eclectic blend of contemporary jazz, as well as music from their brand new ”Top 30″ release, “One Step Closer”.

Jeff Lorber…a true musical legend! Urban Jazz Coalition…one of the hottest contemporary jazz groups in the USA! A dynamite combination…a show that you absolutely will not want to miss!
