O’s Notes: Veteran contemporary jazz keyboardist Jeff Lorber is cooking with his latest solo effort. He includes vocalist Irene B on the opener “Rain Dance/Wanna Fly” along with Randy Brecker’s flugelhorn solo. The sound is fresh with the traditional pop and sizzle of Lorber tunes. Jeff gets support from an all-star cast including Paul Jackson, Jr. (g), Jimmy Haslip (b), Tony Maiden (g), Alex Al (b), Eric Marienthal (sax) and Vinnie Colaiuta (d). “Dr. Moy” is the first of several funky instrumentals. “Black Ice” is classic Lorber featuring solos from Haslip and Marienthal. Irene comes back to sing three more strong tunes notably to round out yet another cool Signature Lorber CD!
