Congratulations to all the GRAMMY Winners that we covered last year…Jeff Lorber, Christian McBride and Billy Childs. 

It was truly an honor and privilege to have had the opportunity to sit with Jeff Lorber and talk about The Jeff Lorber Fusion’s Grammy award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, “Prototype.”  After seven past nominations, he has won his first Grammy, and it is well deserved.  He explains his reaction and how he feels about being considered by many as The Godfather of Fusion.

SJM: Mr. Lorber, first and foremost, congratulations from SJM on your Grammy win. How does it feel?


Jeff: It feels great.  This is my seventh time being nominated, so I definitely know what it feels like to not win (laughter).  Being nominated is pretty great; just being recognized is really great.  When you’re nominated you get to be part of the Grammy Awards, you’re invited to be there, and they have a lot of other events going on around all that which are usually fun to go to. 

SJM: Do you always go when you are nominated?
