Sehr hörens- und sehenswert. Lionel Loueke, Massimo Biolcati und Ferenc Nemeth sind ein fantastisches Trio. Mit Spielwitz geht der Sound unter die Haut. Lionel Loueke ist ein begnadeter Gitarrist und hat seine Zukunft noch vor sich - auch ohne Herbie !
I went on Herbie's concert in Poland, Katowice, and as well as in Barcelona his solo was just amazing. I don't know if in Barcelona it looked the same, but in Katowice Hancock kept on joking that Seventeens were a musical lesson for the crowd and while playing he was counting:) Btw. great composition!
saw him with Herbie as well, but in Barcelona's jazz festival. Lionel blew everyone away with his solo... and seven teens sounded amazing! had to go get the album just for that one but the album version doesn't touch the live one with Kendrick Scott's drumming added to the mix.
interesting jazz artist to say the least!
Lionel is a friend I met in 2004. He has played with some of the best guitarists in the world and is just not being exposed to the jazz audience while on tour with Herbie Hancock. His first album, In a Trance, gives many good examples of his talented playing. My friend Sarah produced the album - if you have any Lionel questions, feel free to ask me!
