Imagine inviting over a few friends for fun and relaxation and you are thinking: What type of music should I play?  A good choice is Jeff Lorber's latest ten track CD, Heard That?  Lorber has been a leading musician in the jazz industry for over 15 years, and his newest disc adds to his legacy.  It has been masterfully done and a little different from his earlier work but he still does it with Lorber finesse. 

His combination of the sax, trumpet, flugelhorn, and piano creates an intimate marriage of music.  Lorber's style is similar to popular jazzmen Euge Groove, Brian Culbertson and Gerald Albright.  This CD is good to the last drop; from its wonderful remake of Amy Winehouse's "Rehab," to the funky piano sonata addition on the title track, you will flow with nostalgia as each song is wistfully performed.

Lorber is joined by some wonderful musicians on this project: Paul Jackson, Jr.; Rex Rideout; Mike White; Rick Braun; and Gerald Albright each bringing their melodic individuality to songs "Gamma Rays,"" Take Control," and" Night Sky."  Each song will captivate you and offer you an up-close and personal feel, as if you were a part of their private jam session.  Heard That is a must for your jazz collection, showing that after 15 years Jeff Lorber still occupies a leading position in the contemporary jazz genre.  Highly Recommended.
