Song of the Week: Jeff Lorber � �Ooh La La�

Smooth jazz pioneer Jeff Lorber has produced one of his best CDs ever � and his first single is a gem. �Ooh La La,� co-written by Lorber, producer Steven Dubin and young keyboardist Nelson Jackson, begins with a brief keyboard intro lifted from some smoky 1950s jazz club, then segues into a jaunty ditty showcasing Lorber�s acoustic piano acumen.

Like the rest of the CD, the song radiates an organic and wholesome freshness that offers a welcome change of pace from his previous funkified works. Lenny Castro provides percussion and John Roberts mans the drums.
