Jeff Lofton @ KUT 5/12/11
Austin-based trumpeter, composer and band leader Jeff Lofton is a veritable jazz virtuoso. Comparisons are frequently made to Miles Davis – and rightfully so. Lofton’s take on standards frequently astounds, and his originals are equally delicious. The Jeff Lofton Electric Thang has a new album coming out titled Chasing the Voodoo Down, and there will be a CD release show at the Cactus Cafe this Saturday. You can hear Jeff Lofton’s performance in KUT’s Studio 1a for host Jay Trachtenberg.
