Over the last decade, noted keyboard whiz Jeff Lorber has helped to fix Los Angeles as the locus of smooth-jazz sound. His geographical musical roots, however, stem from the historic wealth of jazz and soul he heard growing up in Philadelphia. With neo-soul all the rage at home, Lorber shows he's developed the same strain naturally in L.A., as his West Coast crew effortlessly plunders those grooves on "Uncle Darrow's," "Under Wraps," and the too-funky "Regardless Of," featuring singer Naila sounding a lot like Remy Shand. Over the last four releases, Lorber has had no stability with record labels, but in that time the consistent quality of his music has been higher than when he had long-term deals with Arista and Verve. Each record, in fact, has gotten better. This is Lorber at the top of the smooth-jazz game. The ballads here--"When She Smiles," and especially the laid-back "Laissez Faire"--are among the prettiest he's ever written, and of course it wouldn't be a Lorber record without great saxophone performances--and Gary Meek and Richard Elliot both deliver. --Mark Ruffin

Biography

By the late 1970s, keyboardist and composer Jeff Lorber had become a prominent figure in the new movement known as jazz fusion – a marriage of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B, funk and other electrified sounds. Lorber and his band, the Jeff Lorber Fusion, first honed their craft in the Portland, Oregon, club scene and rapidly expanded their reach to a national and ...

This album is OFF THE HOOK! JL hit a Grand Slam Home Run with this one. This will be one of the hottest albums of the year. It's fresh, it's funky, it's Premium Jeff Lorber. If you're a JL fan, it harkens back to the 80's when he put out songs that you listened to over and over and over (like Full Moon Rising). I don't write many reviews, but when I do there's a good reason. You'll want this CD. It's got all the funk and fire that was missing from his last CD (Kicking It, IMHO). The mix is great, the band is tight and interesting and JL's chops have never been better. He left everything on the court this time. Thanks JL!!!

I guarantee Jeff Lorber contributed on at least one of them. His sound really is reminiscent of his 70's albums (yes with Kenny G when the G meant "groove").He takes it back to the old school right from Under Wraps - he somehow reunites the SEAWIND? horn section, and they all meet up in Gigabyte which is the smooth jazz radio single and it's not even the best selection on the cd. Lorber goes D'Angelo with Regardless Of which you won't like at first-but listen again it will become one of your favorites and I mean favorites period. "Hello Goodie Mobb?! Can I use your SOUL FOOD on my next cd?" This conversation actually happened and that song and Uncle Darrow's are my favorites, but all of Phiily Style is vintage Lorber yet incoporates fresh elements from todays musical trends.

While many smooth jazz artists start sounding like caricatures of themselves after a few albums, Jeff Lorber keeps his music fresh and relavant without subsatntially changing from album to album. "Philly Style" is a CD that has all of the classic Jeff Lorber elements, with just enough nuance that it's not in danger of sounding like leftovers from another CD. Pick a track, any track. They're all good. Buy this one without hesitiaiton.

This might be the very best CD he has done in the last 15 or so years. Which is saying a ton! If you like jazz with a beat and GREAT ballads then this is your disc! Funky, tight jazz!!!
The man has COMPLETE mastery of his instruments. At first easy to listen to, but listen closer and his keyboard skills have no equal. A shout out to G. Meek his primary horn player. JL is the original and still the BEST. Grammy time!!!

This album is da'bomb. Jeff came with alot of Philly Soul. His style is new and refreshing to hear. Jeff gave me a reason to listen to my local Jazz Station. This Cd is something that may actually get more young people to want to hear smooth jazz. His neo-soul flavor is remarkable, and I hope that you will enjoy this album as much as I have.

Another good album of JL. Featuring Gary Meek (usually with JL) on tenor and soprano saxophones, Dan Higgins on tenor saxophone, Richard Elliot on tenor saxophone. Four tracks with horn arrangement of Jerry Hey.

Like trying to divine the gospel from a sea of televangelists, the search for good modern jazz music is fraught with imposters and imitators. Welcome to the real thing. Jeff Lorber pioneered this genre back when we called it "Fusion" or "Contemporary Jazz" and the oxymoronic word "smooth" never entered the equation. Lorber has got more groove, vibe, feel, & melodic sensibility than a hundred Boney Jameses or other soap-star-[come]-musicians clogging the smooth jazz airways. This is the cat they all imitate, but fail to emulate.
This CD scores on at least two grounds, it's a solid collection of what Lorber does best of all, combine hooky melodies with irresistible grooves; and it's a great thematic album centered around the "Philly" sound, which means injections of soul, funk and horn sections.
In a genre that has been all but taken over by music to be listened to in elevators and dentist offices, it's great to have one artist stand the test of time, true to where he began. Here he is, Jeff Lorber.

Jeff Lorber's release has a style all it's own. The CD flows as Jeff does on the piano and keyboards and his musicians flow along with him. The vocals and horns add a nice touch to music which has style and substance.
