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’s 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. Jeff Lofton stopped by Studio 1A to strut his stuff, check it out below!
