Lionel Loueke

I reviewed Lionel Loueke's show from last night earlier today (where I snapped the above photo). I've heard him a few times but never in trio. He performed two of my favorite songs, "Benny's Tune" and "Nonvignon," the latter with invited guests Gretchen Parlato and Gregoire Maret, who had one of those network anchors' jaw stuck on the floor accompanying Marcus Miller on a weekend morning show performance not to long ago. I didn't much care for his cover of "Body & Soul" not so much 'cause it was bad but I just think his original compositions are so good and better reflective of his talents. Anyway, check the review out here.
