Jeff Lorber Fusion Releasing 'Hacienda' August 27

Jul 19 2013

Grammy Award-nominated keyboardist, composer, producer Jeff Lorber is set to release his latest Jeff Lorber Fusion album entitled Hacienda via Heads Up/Concord Records on August 27, 2013.  The Jeff Lorber Fusion features the power trio of Lorber on keyboards, bassist/co-producer Jimmy Haslip and saxophonist Eric Marienthal.  Hacienda spotlights eleven tracks, including a take on the Frank Zappa composition “King Kong,” with Jean-Luc Ponty on violin. Other guests include Larry Koonse, Paul Jackson, Jr., Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Lenny Castro, David Mann, and more.  Lorber shares, "Hacienda takes what we started on some of our previous records and puts it into a tighter focus. It also reflects the excitement of doing a lot of touring and discovering what really worked – funky rhythms, unusual chord changes – for international audiences that really understood where we were coming from.”  Lorber continues to tour this summer doing both Jeff Lorber Fusion dates and teaming with guitarist Chuck Loeb and saxophonist Everette Harp for their Jazz Funk Soul tour.  Visit his website here for a full list of concert dates.
