Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the trail-blazing keyboardist, composer and producer. On Galaxy, Jeff Lorber revisits a sound he helped pioneer. Following up on his Grammy-nominated 2010 release, Now Is The Time, Lorber again culls from his early catalog but gives a fresh approach to some of his most highly requested compositions, including "Wizard Island," "City," "The Samba" and "The Underground." Galaxy spotlights 11 originals - all instrumentals - that cover the scope of electrified Jazz. Yellowjackets' bassist Jimmy Haslip joins him in this 21st century version of the Jeff Lorber Fusion along with saxophonist Eric Marienthal, trumpeter Randy Brecker, percussionist Lenny Castro, guitarists Paul Jackson Jr. and Larry Koonse, and drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Weckl.

I think some reviewers here are getting too caught up in superficial aspects of the production and audio presentation of the album and concluding that it's "too smooth" for fusion. In reality this is a great modern fusion album in very much the same vein as Lorber's early fusion work. Sure, the instruments are more sophisticated and the production is well, more digital, this music is still a direct descendant of the stuff you'll hear on the original Jeff Lorber Fusion album from 1977. While you could argue whether this is "smooth jazz", "fusion", or whatever they're calling it these days, if you're a fan of Lorber's early work and you give this album an honest listen you'll probably end up digging it.

I have enjoyed Jeff Lorber's music since he first appeared on the scene in the late 1970s. Lorber seems to understand better than most contemporary jazz artists as to what sounds good and is musically intersting at the same time. My foundation is in bop but I like practically everything Lorber's done and Galaxy is no exception. I particulalry like his habit of going back and re-visiting some of his older tunes and puting "a fresh coat of paint" on them with interesting results. In this case he did that with "City" and "Wizard Island" and I like both renditions.

Jeff Lorber chose an appropriate name for this new effort - the tunes resemble a flight into stellar territory. Highly recommended for those who crave a new experience.

Album has some great grooves and layers. My faves are Big Brother and City, of course. JL likes to get into some high energy rhythms that will keep you moovin'. Many of his tunes have a Latin feel, which I like. Great sidemen, too! Very enjoyable, but not fusion in my book....

If you are a smooth jazz fan (I am not) then get the album. If you are like me and still waiting for the real Jeff Lorber Fusion to show up you may want to hold off. I like that Jeff is trying to get back to his fusion roots but this album still lacks the punch, energy, funk, and emotion of this older stuff. Jeff I know you have to pay your bills but can you put one more CD out that is not so commercial? Get rid of the smooth if you want to really put out a fusion album!!!!! This is a pretty good album but nothing to get excited about if you think that so much smooth jazz lacks emotion and sounds a bit too sterile. Keep trying Jeff your getting closer to a real Jeff Lorber Fusion album. Your still playing it too safe. Safe and real jazz fusion should be used in the same sentence.

I listen to this recording over and over and over and over. Jeff Lorber was one of my favorites from my younger years. I think that for a few years he got off-track and to commercial for my taste. The last few albums with the reconstituted Jeff Lorber Fusion are definately on-track. He mixes new renditions of favorites from my past with fresh offerings.
