    I just bought a ticket to see the Jeff Lorber Fusion and was super psyched to learn that Jimmy Haslip is touring with him, as well as Steve Hass on drums.

    I played my "Wizard Island" LP so many times as a teenager that I literally wore out the record. Those tunes are so catchy I can still hum every note of every melody on every track even after 38 years. Seeing him perform with Jimmy Haslip is going to be incredible, and especially since I was able to get a seat in the Cabaret section three feet from the stage for fifty bucks on their August 12th show. That's a no brainer!!

    Haslip has been producing Lorber's last few albums so I'm not surprised, should be some great shows!

  3. IIRC Jimmy has been with Lorber since going on hiatus from the Yellowjackets as well as some other projects. Jimmy is a player I feel is on the verge of really breaking out into something fresh but it has been a long time coming.

    Here are a few uploads, in reverse chronological order from when they occurred during the show:







    Sorry for the sideways video on number 6. If anybody knows how to rotate it, let me know. Starting with #2, I fixed it by rotating the phone. :)
