Burnside Album Details
Lie, Terje, Bright Moments
Again expanding upon the explosive energy, compelling melodies, and stylistic diversity of his previous critically acclaimed and contemporary jazz radio hit albums Traveler and Urban Vacation, the Norwegian native Terje Lie ("Terry Lee") - celebrating many years in the Los Angeles area - serves up ten joyful Bright Moments with contemporary jazz greats Jimmy Haslip and Jeff Lorber and continues a unique musical vibe best described as "groove jazz." The three got together again to create a rich and fascinating set of ten originals. Lie, with Haslip and Lorber, two of the most renowned artists and producers in contemporary jazz, R&B, and pop since the late 70s, co-wrote five tracks while Lorber and Haslip co-penned one and Lorber wrote the remaining four. Beyond the core presence of Lie on soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone, Jeff Lorber is on everything from Fender Rhodes and various other electronic keyboards to guitar. Jimmy Haslip is on electric bass and Tony Moore takes care of the drums.
