Lionel Loueke Trio
Saturday, February 25 at 8pm
Crowell Concert Hall
“His music rolls along with a feel-good sense of joy…a new Afro-jazz star.”
Benin-born jazz guitarist and vocalist Lionel Loueke combines harmonic sophistication, soaring melodies and grounding in West African music to create a warm, intimate sound with his trio, which features Swedish-born bassist Massimo Biolcati and drummer Marcus Gilmore. Praised by mentor Herbie Hancock as “a musical painter,” Loueke was featured on Hancock’s album River: The Joni Letters (2007), which won Album of the Year and Best Contemporary Jazz Grammy Awards.
