Editorial Reviews

Along with longtime co-writer/producer Steve Dubin & a young keyboardist from Los Angeles, Nelson Jackson, Lorber has crafted a disc that takes his music in new directions. FLIPSIDE is a melding of old style swing rhythms & contemporary hip-hop production, injected with a healthy dose of bebop-era improvisation. In fact, much of FLIPSIDE began as improvisations. Many of the tracks were developed spontaneously in the studio, then later supplemented with overdubbed instrumentation, retaining the initial ideas & melodies that first inspired the songs.

Picture the scene - it's a cold, wet and windy day here in the UK and I'm really down. There's a knock at the door... UPS delivery and this Masterpiece arrives. I've had this pre-ordered for 2 months now and counted the days off - well let me tell you it was worth waiting for...
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.

For those already familiar with previous Jeff Lorber releases, there are no disappointments here. For those less familiar with Jeff Lorber's career, he is one of the true pioneers of what is now referred to as contemporary jazz. In his music you will find a melding of jazz, blues, funk, R&B, world music, etc. wrapped around piano-driven melodies that keep your head-bobbing and your foot tapping to the beat.

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 CD is so funky, rare and fresh. It's my first Jeff Lorber CD although I've been listening to Jazz since I was 13. The music in this collection is new, light, and simply carries you into an alternate universe of joy and light hearted funk. What an amazing addition to anyone's listening experience. I siimply love it!!

Lorber is an oldie, so much so that now his style is refreshingly different than what passes as "contemporary jazz." But, he's still Lorber, and the tunes, well arranged and colorful, still have no real structure and only tiny fragments of melody.

Jeff Lorber has done it again with the release of "Flipside". Every track on the CD is made for highway or city driving and it gets you into the groove. The instrumentation on this CD is superb as well. Track 2 (Everybody Knows That) and Track 8 (Bombay Cafe) are the tracks that really stand out! This whole CD is a work of art. Mr. Lorber keep up to good work!

Any one that knows Jeff Lorber's music can understand that this is a awesome CD. He gives such creation to all his songs you can't vote one to be better than the next. No regrets ever when you listen to Jeff Lorber.....

I stumbled on this CD looking for another tune by Jeff Lorber and absolutely love the songs on this CD. Jeff truly adds his own touch to anything he records and this CD is no exception. Try it and see if you don't love it too...shades of Greq Karukas...enjoy.

It is a very rare occurence to come upon a CD that truly awakens your senses to what real music is, real c jazz. Jeff Lorber shows such wonderful versatility in his style. By far the cut entitled, "By my side" is my favotite. It's a total work of art and I recommend it 100 percent.
