Happy Birthday Jeff Lorber
|Nov 02 2012|
Birthday wishes to Grammy-nominated keyboardist, composer and record producer Jeff Lorber who celebrates this Sunday, November 4th. Jeff was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and began playing the piano when he was four, eventually joining several R&B bands. He attended Berklee College of Music where he studied and fell in love with Jazz. He formed his first band, The Jeff Lorber Fusion after moving to Portland, Oregon and the group released their debut self-titled album in 1977. The band's 1980 album, Wizard Island, introduced Kenny G on saxophone. Jeff launched his solo career in 1982 with the album It's A Fact and then took a break from recording to concentrate on his producing work from 1986 to 1991. Jeff is currently on tour in Europe in support of his latest album, Galaxy, with his newly reformed Jeff Lorber Fusion band. They're performing in Poland tonight (November 2) and will be on stage in Tuscany, Italy on his birthday (November 4).
