Jeff Lofton @ KUTX 06.18.2015

Posted by on Jun 19, 2015

Jazz musician and music advocate Jeff Lofton is a tireless performer with a gift for graceful melody.

Trumpeter and composer Jeff Lofton has already earned the title of Best Jazz Musician at the Austin Music Awards and has been inducted into the Texas Music Museum since moving to Austin in 2007. Frequently compared to Miles Davis, Lofton’s smooth improvisations effortlessly meld together, his silken tones and innovative renditions draping over songs with an effortless cool. In recent years, Lofton has also expanded his reach, adding a funk and rock groove to his jazz repertoire through the Jeff Lofton Electric Thang, while the Jeff Lofton Trio was featured in the Austin-based independent film A Swingin’ Trio.

You can catch Jeff Lofton’s live performance at the Cactus Cafe on June 27th and every Thursday at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. You can also stream his music right here on KUTX.
