5.0 out of 5 stars A lost treasure, December 1, 2010
This review is from: Pull (MP3 Music)
Amazing to think this was written 20 years ago. Truly ahead of its time and easy to see why the record company couldn't understand where it was coming from. This is real music by real musicians. The songwriting is top notch....almost epic. Some of the instrumentation sounds a little dated, but the creative essence of the work is undoubted and very obvious. This was the follow up to Go On and pushes the boat out even further in its exploration of complex harmonies and song structure. I hear Weather Report, XTC, The Beatles, Brian Wilson, Steely Dan, Toto and Yes in the mix, among others. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to form, June 30, 2005
This review is from: Dynamite (Audio CD)
This album is as good as Travelling Without Moving. Perhaps better. The funky grooves are definitely back. There are some strong tracks ...Starchild, World That He Wants, Seven Days, Give Hate A Chance...virtually every one is great. Usually I find one stinker I really can't stand but everything on Dynamite oozes class and good songwriting. The import and UK release has the additional track Time Won't Wait which is worth the extra cash alone. Why they decided to leave it off the US and European release baffles me as its a fantastic piece. I have all the Jamiroquai albums and this has turned into one of my favourite after spinning it for just 2 weeks. Jay Kay may be the bad lad the music industry loves to hate but they can't deny the boy has talent. The album could do with a good jazzy instrumental (a la Roy Ayers) but that's just nitpicking. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, October 16, 2004
This review is from: Yellowjackets (Audio CD)
After almost a quarter of a century this album still sets the standard for modern jazz. As fresh and relevant today as it was back then I haven't heard anything that even comes close to replicating its inventive energy.

If you like your jazz funky, with a touch of RnB, Rock and a dash of Salsa step this way. You will never ever forget the riffs laid down by Ford or the nimble keys of Ferrante. A top notch debut album widely respected and revered by musicians in the know, it has been copied but never bettered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Lorber is back!, April 1, 2003
This review is from: Philly Style (Audio CD)
Jeff is back to his best, churning out phat and phunky tunes, recalling classic fusion albums like Watersign, Wizard Island and Galaxian. With meaty backing including a sassy brass section and delicious vocals Philly Style really succeeds where his last album fell short. This time Lorber doesn't make the mistake of sacrificing good old fashioned melodies for production perfection. There are some beautiful tunes on this album that easily rate amongst the best he's ever done. Each has direction and vibrancy, with killer hooks sprinkled liberally all over the place. I've been a fan of Lorber since Wizard Island and in my opinion this is one of the best albums he has produced since those halcyon days of funk and fusion.
This is what you do best Mr Lorber. We want more!
