- The latest streaming numbers tells us a lot about the current music business
- A new simple and cheap sound isolation tool may make a big difference in all kinds of construction
- Keyboardist, composer and producer Jeff Lorber
Grammy Award-nominated keyboardist, composer, and record producer Jeff Lorber has released more than 25 albums during his career and he’s considered one of the pioneers of the modern jazz genre.
Many of his songs are featured on The Weather Channel’s “Local On The 8s” segments, and he’s contributed tracks for the critically acclaimed PlayStation game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
Jeff has done extensive production and session work for other artists including Dave Koz, Eric Benet, and Herb Alpert, and he’s excelled working as a remixer. He also owns the state of the art JHL Sound Studios.
During the interview, we spoke about the brilliant strategy he used to gain visibility for an early album, the event that got him into engineering, his little-known career in remixer (including a song for U2), and much more.
I spoke with the Jeff via zoom from his studio in Pacific Palisades, CA.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the latest streaming numbers, and a new sound isolation tool that should make a big impact.
