Contemporary Keyboardist, Al Degregoris
Is Back With His Latest Project
Produced by Jeff Lorber
Available Now On iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify
Contemporary keyboardist, Al DeGregoris is back with his latest project – this time with legendary producer/composer/keyboardist Jeff Lorber at the helm! Tight, brassy and retro cool beyond any of his four previous releases, DeGregoris’ new album Time Sensitive – his first since 2016’s Time and a Half – showcases the dynamic chemistry he’s created with fellow keyboardist – and fusion legend more than ever before. The two began collaborating musically years ago, and Lorber began producing tracks for DeGregoris on All in Good Time (2014), but this is the first time that every track on a DeGregoris collection was co-written and produced by Lorber. The result is pure melodic magic, non-stop energetic funk exuberance, driven by the wild, adventurous intertwining of their keyboards, starting with the opening track and lead single “Cookie Jar.”
True to its whimsical title, “Cookie Jar” is relentlessly playful, a punchy, groove-stomping jam that rolls with super-melodic retro riffs, a tight, bouncy bass bottom and a simmering horn section created by David Mann. Lorber has clearly imparted his passion for old school keyboard sounds to DeGregoris, who jams brilliantly on them before exploring the deeper, jazzier soul of the track with a dancing and dazzling, highly improvisational acoustic piano section. A truly uplifting tune set for release a time when our collective spirits most need it, “Cookie Jar” is a non-stop retro funkfest performed by two masterful keyboard talents.
