NEW RELEASES : In Brief

August 22, 1993|ZAN STEWART

* * 1/2 Jeff Lorber, "Worth Waiting For," Verve Forecast. Lorber presents a wealth of contemporary moods here, from the lush Brazilian feel of "Punte del Este" to the intense drive of the riff-based "High Wire." These tunes are bolstered by plenty of rhythmic excitement--John Robinson's drumming stands out--and Lorber shows he can play: His solo on "Underground" exhibits both chops and imagination. But even with Janis Siegal, Lee Ritenour, Bruce Hornsby, Dave Koz, Paul Jackson Jr. and many others aboard, this stuff leaves one with a ho-hum feeling, as if you've heard it all before.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good, recommended), four stars (excellent).
