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.
