Legendary West African jazz guitarist/vocalist Lionel Loueke has released his thrilling third studio album for Blue Note Records
. Co-produced by Robert Glasper, Heritage
finds Loueke exploring a more electric sound and features bassist Derrick Hodge, keyboardist Robert Glasper and drummer Mark Guiliana. This essential recording features seven new compositions by Loueke, two by Glasper and one co-written by the pair. The New York Times
recently described Loueke as a “gentle virtuoso.” This album is absolutely essential.
ReviewsLoueke and Glasper are among a handful of new voices bringing fresh sounds to contemporary jazz, and helping usher a whole new audience to the genre thanks to their creativity, technique and eagerness to break new ground. Heritage is a great example of this fresh new approach. - All About Jazz
