Press release from Heads Up International:
THE JEFF LORBER FUSION REVISIT A REVOLUTIONARY SOUND THEY HELPED PIONEER
Galaxy features Jimmy Haslip, Eric Marienthal, Paul Jackson, Jr., Vinnie Colaiuta, Lenny Castro, Dave Weckl, Larry Koonse and Randy Brecker.
January 31, 2012, Heads Up release spotlights 11 originals including four tracks from the Jeff Lorber Fusion’s early catalog.
Trailblazing keyboardist/composer/producer Jeff Lorber revisits a sound he helped pioneer on his latest recording, Galaxy, set for release on January 31, 2012, on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group.
Yellowjackets’ bassist Jimmy Haslip joins him in this 21st century version of the Jeff Lorber Fusion along with saxophonist Eric Marienthal, trumpeter Randy Brecker, percussionist Lenny Castro, guitarists Paul Jackson Jr. and Larry Koonse, and drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Weckl. Haslip also co-produced the album and co-wrote five tunes with Lorber.
“What I like about working with Jimmy is he’s very intuitive,” says Lorber. “It’s often hard for me to wear so many hats so I really count on him for advice. I have a lot of confidence in him and really trust him. He has a good big picture sensibility, and he really loves the whole recording process, like I do.”
“Coming into the project, I felt like Jeff was plugged in with an explosive energy,” Haslip says. “He was writing up a storm. I just wanted to help in any way I could. Jeff is an incredible producer, and I learned a lot working with him.”
