Keyboardist/composer/producer Jeff Lorber, heralded as “one of the founding fathers of fusion” (Keyboard), brings his GRAMMY®-nominated power trio, The Jeff Lorber Fusion, to Milwaukee for one night only as a benefit concert for Athletes for Autism.
Since the late 1970s, this contemporary jazz collective, featuring bassist/co-producer Jimmy Haslip and saxophonist Eric Marienthal, has blended elements of jazz, funk, rock, R&B and world music into a distinctive sound that has connected with audiences from a variety of continents, cultures and generations. In more recent years, the group’s studio efforts such as their 2010 release, Now Is the Time (2010) and Galaxy (2012), influenced by extensive touring throughout Europe and Asia, have been colored with vibrant shades of dance and house music. These same colors are at the forefront of Hacienda, the new album from The Jeff Lorber Fusion released in August on Heads Up, a division of Concord Music Group.
