Since his move to Austin in 2007 at the age of 40, jazz trumpeter Jeff Lofton has been mesmerizing our fine city with his illustrious trumpeting skills and gorgeous sense of melody. Lofton has won numerous accolades throughout his career, including being voted Best Jazz Musician at the 2010-11 Austin Music Awards, not to mention the naming of January 15, 2009 as “Jeff Lofton Day” in Austin. He was also inducted into the Texas Music Museum. Lofton is widely hailed as a major player in the jazz world, and is often (deservedly, we think) compared to Miles Davis.
We were thrilled to have the trumpeter in our studio on Wednesday, July 10, and you can check out the audio right here!
