LIONEL LOUEKE: Blue Note Records CD-Release Party
FEATURING:
Lionel Loueke, guitar & vocals
Massimo Biolcati, bass
Ferenc Nemeth, drums

Born in Benin, Africa, Loueke has already forged a remarkable career path. His musical studies brought him from West Africa to Paris, France, and later to the United States where he studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in Los Angeles.

It was at the Monk Institute that Loueke first met and gained the admiration of Terence Blanchard, Herbie Hancock, and Wayne Shorter. Before even graduating from the Institute, Loueke had already started performing in Blanchardís sextet, becoming an integral member of that progressive band both as a performer and a composer, and appearing on Blanchardís first two albums for Blue Note Records, Bounce and the Grammy-nominated Flow.

Loueke has released several independent recordings, including In A Trance (Space Time), Gilfema (Obliqsound) and Virgin Forest (Obliqsound). He is also currently a member of Hancockís touring band.
