Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. Wizard Island. You won't get any argument from me that Water Sign,The Jeff Lorber Fusion's Arista debut was a fine,slowly crawling and swampy jazz-funk album. And that alone is a candidate for Jeff Lorber's best album alone. But musically this album is a very different animal. Featuring the same trio as before in the rhythm section this album serves as the introduction of Kenny G(orilick) into the band and in this case he's a welcome addition as his sound (at that time anyway) really helped as he was already quite experience with sophisticated funk from working with Barry White.
