More about Jeff Lofton:
Winner "Best Jazz Band" 2010-11 Austin Music Awards
"Jazz to the People" - Top 9 Austin Albums of 2009 - Austin Chronicle
"... 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."
