On the website of Jeff Lorber Fusion Live On Tour we see a list: Prague , Moscow , Milan, London , Manchester , Stuttgart , Amsterdam and Wageningen. Some of the places where the famous quartet will play live. And as small and stubborn jazz stage, we are very pleased that these big names come and play with us.
The American keyboardist Jeff Lorber is playing on a lot of records in my collection and is one of the most important musicians of the jazz fusion - a fusion of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B,
funk and electronic sounds. In 1977 he made the album The Jeff Lorber Fusion (incidentally missing in my collection), and since then he has made more than 20 albums. He has been working and playing with a lot of famous musicians and late last year he made an album with the very best fusion "Hacienda". On the album are playing Jimmy Haslip (The Yellowjackets), Eric Marienthal, Larry Koonse, Paul Jackson Jr., Lenny Castro, David Mann, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl and Jean-Luc Ponty. The album was nominated for a Grammy.
In Wageningen Jeff Lorber
(keyboards) is playing with Eric Marienthal (tenor sax), Jimmy Haslip (bass) and Sonny Emory (drums). A very famous line-up. More information about the band and the artists can be found on www.lorber.com
The concert starts at 20.15h on Monday, half an hour earlier than we are used to, so everybody can be home in time and go to work extra happy the next day.
