Berks Jazz Fest 2014: Jeff Lorber Fusion

At 10pm the Jeff Lorber Fusion appeared in a club setting at the Jazz Base, the lineup consisted of Jeff Lorber on keyboards, Jimmy Haslip on bass, Eric Marienthal on sax, Randy Brecker on trumpet and Lionel Cordew on drums. This was their second set that evening, they did "Hacienda" from their current release (which got a Grammy nomination), followed by "He Had A Hat", then they did a Zappa track called "King Kong", followed by "Monserrat" featuring the horn section. The band was always tight and groovy, both Randy Brecker and Eric Marienthal were smoking, delivering numerous outstanding solos, Jimmy Haslip contributed a few hot solos as well, while keeping it all together with drummer extraordinaire Lionel Cordew. They played for one hour and came back to do one encore, finishing one of the most memorable shows of the whole festival for me so far.
