More than three decades after his earliest recordings, Lorber has come full circle. His new recording, Now Is The Time, was released on June 1, 2010, on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group. The album delves back into his early catalog and reinvents some of the most compelling compositions from the Jeff Lorber Fusion heyday. As a result, the artist once again makes a bold statement in the evolution of jazz. This new incarnation of the Jeff Lorber Fusion includes luminaries like bassist Jimmy Haslip (who co-produced with Lorber and Bobby Colomby), saxophonist Eric Marienthal, trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarist Paul Jackson Jr., and drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Weckl.

In December 2008, Matt’s self-produced début album was released to rave reviews. The album features nine original masterpieces that uncover his amazing writing, arranging, and performing talents, along with three covers that he interprets with intense artistry and feeling. And in July 2009, Matt Cusson won (by unanimous vote) the renowned John Lennon Songwriting Contest’s top annual prize – the Maxell Song of the Year – for his exquisite and heartfelt “One of Those Nights”, which had previously been selected as a Grand Prize winner in the Jazz category and went on to receive the Lennon Award. What’s more, Matt was also one of the finalists in the R&B category for his soulful song “Every Step”. His self-titled album is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.
