JEFF LORBER FUSION, Impact
Legendary contemporary jazz trailblazers Jeff Lorber and Jimmy Haslip knew exactly how to celebrate the keyboardist’s first ever Grammy win this year for their 2017 Jeff Lorber Fusion album PROTOTYPE: get back in the studio and make the next one even funkier, tighter and more musically and harmonically compelling.
The fruits of their labor result in the perfectly titled IMPACT, a jammin’ powder keg of a collection which crackles, sears the soul, and commands detailed attention with a swirl of primal energy and silky cool from the jammin’ get-go.
With genre-transcendent nods to everyone from Horace Silver to J.R.R. Tolkien, JLF takes on added fuel via a high-powered guest list including Paul Jackson, Jr., Andy Snitzer, Dave Mann and Gary Novak.
