AlbrightBrown

An Evening with Gerald Albright & Norman Brown

No instruments dominate smooth jazz more than the guitar and saxophone, which is why Gerald Albright and Norman Brown, two of the genre’s most dominant players, make such an inspired pairing. Both musicians are on the top of their game!

Above all, Albright and Brown are experts at entertaining the audience. There’s no pretense of anything. The duo has secured their place in contemporary jazz and even if they aren’t breaking new ground, they clearly have a synergy that makes this stylish collaboration work so well.

& New Year’s Allstar Jam-Session on Dec. 31, 2015 at midnight

With a smooth sound bringing together elements of funk, R&B, rock and electric jazz, keyboardist, composer and producer Jeff Lorber helped pioneer a genre of fusion later formatted in contemporary jazz. Born in Philadelphia, he began playing the piano at the age of four, and as a teen performed with a variety of local R&B bands. Lorber’s infatuation with jazz began during his stay at the Berklee College of Music, and after forming the Jeff Lorber Fusion he issued the group’s self-titled debut in 1977. During the first half of the following decade, the band became one of the most popular jazz acts of the period, touring nonstop and even scoring a Best R&B Instrumental Grammy nomination for the radio hit “Pacific Coast Highway.” Another Grammy nomination followed for Lorber’s CD “Now is the time”. 2013 he returned to his musical roots and with his 24th album “Galaxy” he gave himself over to the sound that he once had helped to define: Contemporary Jazz. His latest CD, “Step It Up” was released on September 25, 2015. The fourth consecutive collaboration between the Grammy-nominated keyboardist and Grammy-winning bassist/composer/producer Jimmy Haslip.
