The usual Lorber crew are all here - Co-production by Steven Dubin, Lenny Castro on percussion, John Roberts on drums, Alex Al on bass (only 2 tracks though,) Gary Meek on flute and saxes. You also get appearances from David Mann, Paul Jackson, JR & Robbie Nevill. New name to me Nelson Jackson also features on keys and songwriting duties. That's where the usual stops because this CD is just so superior to anything that has gone before....
You get 10 tracks of pure genius, the instrumentation and clarity of production is out of this world. This CD isn't as immediate as Jeff's previous outings and that's a good thing in my opinion because you are forced to listen and that's when you discover the magic.......
We start off with the current single "Ooh La La" which is a midtempo showcase for Lorber and Castro's great percussive sound.
Next the uptempo "Everybody Knows That" - really heavy bass sound and nice sax/piano combination on the chorus section.
"By my side" is fast becoming my favourite track - its just a beautiful song along the lines of "When she smiles" (Philly Style) and features Cello fills which make the tune.
"Flipside" is a remake? of "Uncle Darrows" (Philly Style) but with a real funky bass line and 70s sounding horn section
"Santa Monica Triangle" - has a skipping, almost Ska like beat with Lorber playing rhodes over it. Great guitar and rhodes combination in places.Read more ›
On Flipside, the groove is still as tight as ever and Jeff's chops on the acoustic and Wurlitzer pianos are instantly recognizable. As I have come to expect, the rythm section and guest artists on this album give stellar performances. Lorber even rekindles Tune 88 from Water Sign (1980)which is the album that introduced me to the magic of Jeff Lorber. This song is still a pleasure to listen to 26 years later. This is a great album and you definitely won't be sorry you added it to your collection.

This is one of Jeff Lorber's most consistent efforts. No sappy pop-centric lyrics here. It's funky, upbeat, laid back, and all instrumental.Published 21 months ago by Ken Helms
