Andy's Jazz Show #194

In this show I ask the question do you prefer classic Jeff Lorber or the newer version ? Personally I prefer the older stuff and Soft Space often gets a spin on my deck and a chance to work out my classic Tannoy 609's.Chick Corea and Joe Farrell make this an interesting album. Wizard Island gives Kenneth Gorelick a chance to work out before transforming in Kenny G.
You can leave your opinion below or email me
The 3play is from Wilbert Longmire and there are plenty of classic tracks to enjoy.
