Jeff Lofton Electric Thang does Miles Davis' “Bitches Brew" at Lamberts plus sets at Antone's

Austin - In the tradition of Miles Davis, jazz trumpeter Jeff Lofton expands his sound and takes on a new challenge with his side project, the Jeff Lofton Electric Thang, presenting Miles Davis' Bitches Brew at Lamberts, 401 W. 2nd Street, Friday, July 2 at 9:30 p.m. Cover is $7.00.

The Jeff Lofton Electric Thang also plays a set at Antone's, 213 W. 5th, at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday June 30, as part of Represent Austin's Funkin' Hump Day, hosted by the Bruce James Soultet. The June 30 line-up includes Kalu James.

For recent shows at Antone's, Momo's and the Ghost Room, Lofton described the group as, “...trumpet meets electric guitar in a jazz-funk fusion Miles-ian extravaganza - a collaboration of musicians creating a free form funk-fusion ensemble whose purpose is to recreate and expand on the Miles Davis fusion of the 1970s and 1980s."

The 1970 landmark album Bitches Brew was Davis' first gold record, and is considered to have changed jazz and strongly influenced rock and funk music. The 40-year-anniversary is being widely celebrated from special reissues of the double album in August, to a tribute beer created by Delaware's Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.

For the Bitches Brew show, the Jeff Lofton Electric Thang includes Marcus Wilcher on tenor sax, Darin Layne on guitar, Austin Kimble on keys, David Webb on keys, Chris Jones on bass, Jordan Cook on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
