Lionel Loueke at the 2015 London Jazz Festival

Julian Joseph presents a solo performance given by Benin-raised guitarist Lionel Loueke on the Jazz Line-Up stage as part of the 2015 EFG London Jazz Festival.

Julian Joseph presents a solo performance by West African born guitarist Lionel Loueke recorded on the Jazz Line-Up stage as part of the 2015 EFG London Jazz Festival. Lionel is a graduate of America's Berklee College of Music and also studied at the Thelonious Monk Institute with his mentors pianist/composer Herbie Hancock, saxophonist Wayne Shorter and trumpeter Terence Blanchard. Hancock describes Loueke as 'a musical painter' who weaves through his guitar playing the spirit of African folk forms with his harmonic complexity and deep sense of melody. Also on the programme Kevin Le Gendre presents his regular feature 'Now's The Time', this month shining the spotlight on 'Prelude To Heart Is A Lotus' by the Michael Garrick Sextet featuring the bassist Coleridge Goode who died this year aged 100.
