JEFF LORBER FUSION

Jeff Lorber (Keyboards) | Jimmy Haslip (Bass) | Andy Snitzer (Saxophone) | Gary Husband (Drums)

Born in Philadelphia, multi Grammy-nominated keyboardist, composer and producer Jeff Lorber began playing the piano at the age of four. In the mid 70’s, during his stay at the Berklee College of Music, he formed Jeff Lorber Fusion and issued the group’s self-titled debut in 1977. Soon, the band became one of the most popular jazz acts of the period, touring nonstop. The band scored their first Grammy nomination for the album “Now Is The Time” in 2010, followed by the nomination for “Hacienda in 2013. In 2018, the Jeff Lorber Fusion album “Prototype” finally won the Grammy Award for “Prototype”. The CD features longtime collaborators Jimmy Haslip (bass), Gary Novak (drums) and – the newest member to the all-star unit – saxophonist Andy Snitzer. Haslip started playing trumpet aged seven before discovering electric bass when he was 13. In addition to the Grammy for Prototype, he won the award twice with his band Yellojackets and has been nominated 18 times in total so far. Jeff has been nominated seven times, Andy once.
