About Urban Vacation
In 2009, saxophonist Terje Lie hooked up with multi-Grammy winner Jimmy Haslip of the Yellowjackets and legendary keyboardist/composer/producer Jeff Lorber to make a new album. The result is Urban Vacation! Haslip and Lorber produced it and also joined Terje in playing on all tracks. Tony Moore is on drums. In addition, Mike Landau and Dwight Sills are featured on guitar, Ernest Tibbs added bass parts on two tracks, Jeff Olson plays drums on a track, and Sharon Perry does lead vocals.
Haslip, Lie, and Lorber all contributed to the writing process and this co-operative process has resulted in a unique album. Yes, the CD goes far beyond the general contemporary or smooth jazz album – with so many groovy and catchy tracks on the funky side that it’s hard to decide which ones to use as singles. Yes, which ones. Three fourths of the tracks could probably be singles, if not all!
A seriously groovy album for you all to look forward to!
“Adding Haslip and Lorber to his team gave rise to a fascinating
collaborative process that sparked what became a truly
adventurous, R&B-driven contemporary jazz album.”
