KUTX Presents

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. 

His creativity, musical integrity and talent has been well-received in both his 1950’s Miles Davis tribute as well as his original material. In 2009 the City of Austin proclaimed Jan 15th “Jeff Lofton Day.” Jeff Lofton’s reputation for professionalism as well as his approachable sound has made him one of the most sought after jazz performers in central Texas. Jeff has performed for members of the Texas legislature, for Austin city council’s inauguration, for both the Governor and Lt. Governor of Texas.
