Trailblazing pianist, composer, producer and bandleader Jeff Lorber is a consummate artist who continues to push himself to new plateaus. A groundbreaking Fender Rhodes pioneer along with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Joe Sample and Bob James, Lorber has triumphed as one of the most innovative musical minds in contemporary jazz. The multi Grammy-nominated pianist’s newest CD is a sterling example of his expansive musical roots, masterfully crafted harmonic and melodic sophistication, irresistible finger-poppin’ grooves and intricate rhythmic sense. See him and the band on August 11th.
David Benoit and Marc Antoine perform August 25
This is an historic meeting of 2 contemporary jazz giants. These trailblazing artists have scored more than 25 #1 Smooth Jazz radio hits, sold over 2 million albums and toured the world over for more than 20 years. Their new album together, “So Nice”, is a perfect blending of these great artist’s instrumental styles. It combines the cool grooves of Smooth Jazz with the exotic sensuosity of Brazilian music, and the result is pure magic. See these stars on August 25th.
Vincent Ingala and Lindsey Webster perform September 1
One of the fastest emerging contemporary jazz recording artists in recent history, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Vincent Ingala has blasted into an exciting stratosphere of his own making since his 2010 critically acclaimed debut album, North End Soul. Still in his early twenties, the charismatic saxophonist has been named Billboard Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year in 2012. From the first note, Lindsey Webster captivates listeners.
