Lionel Loueke Trio Concert 8 PM, Lecture at 2 PM

If you don’t have plans tonight, definitely come see Lionel Loueke! If you don’t know who he is:

Benin-born jazz guitarist and vocalist Lionel Loueke combines harmonic sophistication, soaring melodies and grounding in West African music to create a warm, intimate sound with his trio, which features Swedish-born bassist Massimo Biolcati and Hungarian drummer Ferenc Nemeth. Praised by mentor Herbie Hancock as “a musical painter,” Loueke was featured on Hancock’s album River: The Joni Letters (2007), which won Album of the Year and Best Contemporary Jazz Grammy Awards.

There will be a lecture/demonstration by Mr. Loueke at 2:00 PM in the Daltry Room (Music Rehearsal Hall 003).
