JFS

The Smooth Jazz Cruise in association with Alan Stein

A marriage of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B, funk and other electrified sounds. Lorber’s music reaches a new level by crystallizing jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms with some killer melodies that translate exceptionally to live performance. More than just a jazz guitar player, Chuck Loeb is the consummate musician. In a career that spans four decades, he has proven himself to be a versatile composer, arranger and producer in a wide range of musical styles and contexts. Lorber and Loeb will be joined by talented saxophonist Everette Harp.
