Everette Harp (Saxophone) / Paul Jackson Jr (Guitar) / Jeff Lorber (Keyboards)

Omne trium perfectum – everything that comes in threes is perfect. When it comes to the trio Jazz Funk Soul (JFS), this statement rings true. Saxophonist Everette Harp, keyboardist Jeff Lorber and guitarist Paul Jackson Jr., who joined the trio after the untimely passing of Chuck Loeb, are a complete package of musical wonder. The giants of Contemporary Jazz, who have collaborated with icons like Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin and B.B. King, are like cosmic rays, emitting unlimited musical possibilities. Each member is a dazzling virtuoso, accomplished bandleader, composer, and producer in their own right. ‘We each bring our own interpretations of Contemporary and Mainstream Jazz together in a way that allows us to break the bonds of the normal approach to Smooth Jazz,’ shares Everette and Jeff adds: ‘All of us love music, especially Jazz, not to mention Funk and Soul!’ The dynamic three-some are responsible for selling millions of albums and scoring more than 50 #1 Smooth Jazz radio hits. At the core of the trio’s allure is their genuine camaraderie, which is anchored by each member’s passion to create. JFS’s new recording, ‘Forecast’, is a shining example of their magnetic chemistry and inspired performances.
