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.

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....

Oh, these songs take me back! I remember these songs "of old," and they never cease to lift me when I'm down and make my feet start tapping. What a great buy! Highly recommended! My husband and I recently saw Jeff Lorber in concert at Nighttown in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and he was excellent - as good in concert as ever. This CD reminds me of how much fun we had that night!

Lorber has been a favorite of mine since the early 80's. He is an accomplished pianist and writes great accessible tunes. This CD revisits some of his earlier work with new top-notch players, most notably drummer, Vinnie Colaiuta and bassist, Jimmie Haslip. There are also some great new tunes. If you area fan this CD is a "must add" to your collection.

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.

This music is funky, hip, jazzy, tight, groovin' and Lorber takes some brilliant solos. Love these tunes and its great to hear them again with the full treatment that modern production has to offer.

I love Lorber's keyboard sound, and the sound of Vinnie's drums.

They keep the genius just in check until the solos where it leaks out.
