Benin-native guitarist and vocalist Lionel Loueke--a current Blue Note Records artist whose most recent release Heritage was produced by labelmate Robert Glasper—performs with bassist Massimo Biolcati and drummer Ferenc Nemeth. Loueke stands out in a crowded field of musicians with his trademark sound which “fuses traditional African music with modern jazz harmonies, unique vocal inflections, and complex time signatures” (NPR). Part of Blue Note at 75.
