Product Description

Review

"Lionel Loueke has already achieved greatness" -- Bill Buettler, Boston Globe

"Loueke can stake his claim as a real original, an artist for whom notions of genre become an irrelevance. Such is the sheer beauty of his work." -- Keven Le Gendre, BBC Jazz on 3

"Loueke's playing and singing can only be described as remarkable" -- Don Heckman, LA Times

Format: Audio CD
If new Jazz sevants like Branford Marsalis, and older ones like Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock were or are seeking a connection between American Jazz and the rich music of West Africa, their search is successful. Lionel Loueke is a jewel who vehemently wants to push music, rather than run away to the USA in search of the Soundtrack money bonanza. Quickly Mr Shorter and Mr Hancock, get this music master into the studio before he is doing the soundtrack to SPEED 3, or some dumb bastard puts a blank check in front of him. I do not think he is a sellout, but he is not driving a Bentley, and hanging with a lot of Jazz (elevator) sellouts. His music will make you smile or make you cry. Either way, he is on the right path. Keep his innocence and work on a two CD project, put some money behind him, and BOOM, Jazz gets the shot in the arm it needs so desperately right now.

-Just a great recording with lots of dynamics(very musical)and all of the musicians have lots to say. The album is very much like a story with many interesting characters and plot twists. Plus it often Grooves-especially the title song.

This is another release from a very talented guitarist/composer. It's great to hear new sounds and he's a great player. Very emotional and dynamic.

I'm puzzled why more people are'nt aware of Lionel Loueke.

Cheers,
Matt
