Lionel Loueke Trio

His audition in the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz left all-star judges Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Terence Blanchard flabbergasted. Lionel Loueke would go on to play on albums by the latter two, who would later return the favour on his own 2008 album Karibu. The wonderful Benin guitarist, who appeared at the Montreal Guitar Show in 2007, has a unique facility for melding gentle songs from the African tradition with technical skill from the most contemporary jazz!

Marc-André Sarault
Marc-André Sarault (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
Guitarist Lionel Loueke has appealed to a broad spectrum of audiences by effortlessly blending a heartfelt African tradition with highbrow jazz. When he gave a free concert here in 2007, I knew it wouldn’t be long before he was playing in concert halls.
