Jeff Lorber Covers Amy Winehouse Hit Song

Lorber_Jeff_08a.jpgKeyboardist and producer Jeff Lorber has just wrapped up production of a new funky and soulful CD co-produced by smooth jazz veteran Rex Rideout. The CD, Heard That, is Lorber's follow-up to the Grammy-nominated He Had a Hat, which featured the hit single “Anthem for a New America.”

The CD of original material does have one cover song: an instrumental version of British singer’s Amy Winehouse’s "Rehab,” which was mixed by Paul Brown and features Rick Braun on trumpet. In addition to the title track, which was co-written with saxophonist Eric Darius, the CD features titles such as “Don’t Hold Back,” “Gamma Rays,” “Don’t Stop” and “The Bomb."

Heard That, Lorber's debut for Peak Records, will be available on Sept. 30. I've listened to an advance version, and this is definitely a CD you'll want.
