BOP is a one-of-a-kind traditional bebop album that brings together world-class musicians, conceived by Grammy nominated keyboardist/composer/producer, Jeff Lorber, and guitarist, Chuck Loeb. The concept was brought to life at the Berk’s Jazz Festival in Philadelphia, at which Loeb conducts the bebop jam sessions. They organized and co-produced the record together, and later recorded it at Lorber’s studio.
All proceeds from this fan-funded project will go to the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation. Based in Kansas City, the PKD Foundation is fully committed to discovering treatments and a cure for the disease. Lorber is a kidney transplant recipient and many members of his family have suffered from PKD. This project is his way of spreading the word and giving back to the foundation that has done so much for him and his family.
Participants in the BOP project will get a look into the storyline of the project and how the album concept was created. Premium offers include credit listing on the record for supporting the PKD Foundation, being a special VIP guest at next year’s Berks Jazz Festival, and meeting the musicians on BOP.
