Biography

By the late 1970s, keyboardist and composer Jeff Lorber had become a prominent figure in the new movement known as jazz fusion – a marriage of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B, funk and other electrified sounds. Lorber and his band, the Jeff Lorber Fusion, first honed their craft in the Portland, Oregon, club scene and rapidly expanded their reach to a national and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars SmoothJazz.com Review 2 Oct 2008
By Sandy Shore - Published on Amazon.com
Composer/producer/keyboard legend/elder statesman for Smooth Jazz Jeff Lorber has done it again! His Peak album debut HEARD THAT is, as expected, absolutely stellar. The first radio single sets a torrid pace for the rest of the set, with its bluesy, old-school funk treatment of Amy Winehouse's Grammy-winning hit "Rehab." It'll remind you of the vibe on Ramsey Lewis' "In Crowd." On HEARD THAT, Jeff returns to his fusion-funk roots after the more jazz-oriented HE HAD A HAT album from 2007, and ensures the groove by collaborating with legendary pop, R&B producer Rex Rideout. HEARD THAT is amply infused with a pop, jazz, R&B, and Blues flavor, and naturally has that classic Lorber signature taste of 80's Fusion sound running through it all. Jeff acknowledges that "Jazz thrives on being a collaborative medium," and including players like Rick Braun, Paul Jackson, Jr. and Gerald Albright as sidemen doesn't hurt either! So what's Jeff Lorber's secret to his success and longevity? He answers, "My work ethic and the time I spend focusing on writing... I'm open to inspiration and ideas 24 hours a day." And that's exactly why we get awesome projects like HEARD THAT with every new Jeff Lorber release! ~SCOTT O'BRIEN

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best 11 Dec 2008
By David W. Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jeff Lorber's musical muse on the keyboards has always struck me as a mid-point between the more esoteric and "hard fusion" works of, say Herbie Hancock/Chick Corea/Lyle Mays and the jazz-lite, "smoothier" work of the Brian Culbertson/Bob James/Alex Bugnon school. Every once in awhile--case in point being "He Had A Hat"--Jeff veers to the more varied and adventurous (even though he goes more "classic" on that disc than fusiony). Other times--"Flipside" being the perfect example--he goes the other direction and becomes so frustratingly like the other "smoothies" that he's virtually indistiguishable from them.

Well, "Heard That" totally breaks the mold and hearkens back to his funkiest, most distinctive, and (in my opinion at least) his best work. Fender Rhodes is all over the place on this; I must admit inherent bias towards well played electric piano as my absolute favorite musical sound. And Jeff Lorber reinforces on "Heard That" that he is among the best on it, if not THE best (Herbie Hancock fans might object, and I'd agree there's room for debate on that subject).

Cut by cut: "Come On Up" with it's funky musical bed literally leapt through the headphones--some great interplay between electric keys, acoustic, and some brass punctuation. Reminds me of "Water Sign" updated for the 2000's, and that is a major compliment. "Rehab" is given a semi-Ramsey Lewis "In Crowd" treatment, but Lorber's ultra-clean production gives it a much needed shot of energy lacking in much of his predecessor Lewis's work. "Don't Hold Back" gets funky, groovy, and has what I call that "slapback" going on--I won't hold against him that he's mostly acoustic on the keys here cuz the tune just slams..."You Got Something" is the usual vocal nod to contemporary R&B that he throws at least one cut of on each album; its cousin track "Don't Stop" and the (mostly) instrumental "Take Control" are only average for Jeff. Which is to say that these three tracks, if they appeared on a Bobby Lyle or Alex Bugnon CD, would be well above average. "Gamma Rays" hearkens back to Jeff's Fusion days; this is what "Black Ice" would have sounded like if it came out in 2008 instead of in 1976. "The Bomb" is just that--more of that funky "slapback" and some way cool Fender Rhodes make this baby explode. "Night Sky" starts off in a similar fashion but lays back into a comfortable groove on acoustic. The best is saved for last--the title cut, "Heard That", is one of the best things that Funkmeister Jeff has ever committed to digital (or vinyl for that matter, revealing the age of the reviewer). The organ/sax/Fender Rhodes interplay, the "in the pocket" blues groove, punchy brass accents--it's all here and (to partially quote another one of my many favorites in Jeff's canon) really "Kicks It".

As a keyboard player of considerably less skill and talent than Mr. Lorber, I am in absolute marvel and awe as to how he consistently scores, release after release. Most of the time, he hits a home run or at the very least triples. With "Heard That", he's knocked a grand slam clean into the next park. In fact, it's so durn good I'll bet that your average "Smooth Jazz Radio" DJ will smile upon sampling it, but shelve it anyway, and instead queue up the ever-boring, nausea-inducing "Songbird" by the (former) protege of Mr. Lorber, one Kenny G who's gone the opposite direction (e.g. un-funked) with his music. Too bad that the well-deserved master will invariably take a back seat to the student, at least in the media that should be exposing listeners to the best (e.g. Lorber) that contemporary jazz has to offer instead of the most insipid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific tunes but too many vocals! 16 Dec 2008
By Mark Mohr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jeff Lorber is a very creative musician. I don't think you'd find anybody that would argue with that. However, as some other reviewers have pointed out, that creativity doesn't always wind up equaling predictability because you never know exactly what kind of CD you're going to get with Jeff Lorber and I suppose that's part of his charm. For me, I'd prefer that he stick with the upbeat, quick tempo smooth jazz style that he has all-but defined. There is a lot of that on "Heard That", but there are too many vocal tracks to suit me. Why can't he come up with one all-vocal tracks CD for people who like that style and another one with nothing but cuts like "Come on Up" and "Gamma Rays" for people like me? Personally, I didn't think "Rehab" worked at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice! 9 Oct 2008
By G. Meredith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Upon first impression this CD is very nice from start to finish. Its been a while since I have listened to a CD that made such a great first impression. I have no complaints at all. The musical compositions are satisfying along with great sound quality. This CD recording has a very good sense of spacial presentation as well. This CD sounds much better throughout than his prior project.
