|JEFF LOFTON'S JAZZ TO THE PEOPLE|
with nine original compositions by Jeff Lofton and interpretations of "Georgia" and "Crazy"
"... hits the bull's-eye on this sterling local debut that digs a deep groove ... crafted a sound largely around Davis' formative quintet of the late 1950s ... embraces the blues and swings passionately ... reinforces the Miles connection with the deft use of muted trumpet on soulful strutters ... blows reminiscent of Lee Morgan's Blue Note hits of the mid-1960s ... a delightfully swingin' affair." ~ Jay Trachtenberg, The Austin Chronicle, Texas Platters, Music Review
The CD includes Alex Coke on sax, Red Young on piano, Chris Jones on bass and Masumi Jones on drums, and features Danielle Howle on "Crazy."
