Austin-based jazz trumpeter and composer


Compared to What

by Jeff Lofton, ft. Murali Coryell on vocal and guitar, 

"Phasellus accumsan dapibus nunc vel vestibulum. Donec consequat mattis nibh, ut lacinia urna placerat vitae. Pellentesque quis sem tortor, in gravida mi. Nam pulvinar tincidunt elit vitae rhoncus. Sed eget malesuada nulla. Morbi est ligula, hendrerit sit amet laoreet id, dapibus vitae neque. Duis fermentum nibh vitae lectus lobortis congue. Phasellus at sapien magna. Nunc vitae nibh nulla."

"Fans of Jazz in Austin are no strangers to legend Jeff Lofton. For those who haven't discovered him yet, here's a quick bio: Studied music composition at The University of South Carolina, moved to Austin in 2007 at the Age of 40, and has been shaking up the scene with his stunning Miles Davis tributes and his own original music with his groups The Jeff Lofton Trio and Jeff Lofton Electric Thang. Hearing his sound, the Miles Davis references and tributes make sense. Lofton has a sense of phrasing and musicality that rival those of the Prince of Darkness himself." - KUTX 98.9 FM, Austin's NPR station

"Born in Germany and raised in South Carolina, trumpeter Jeff Lofton has risen as a cornerstone of the Austin scene since landing 10 years ago. He switches easily from NOLA swing to the birth of cool, exploring jazz-funk with the Jeff Lofton Electric Thang 
and earning rave reviews for his Miles Davis tribute performances."
