Virgin Forest - The Complete Sessions

Virgin Forest - The Complete Sessions by Lionel Loueke
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Obliqsound
This reissue marked the 10th anniversary of Lionel Loueke's debut, a heavy-hitting coming out party which introduced Loueke to audiences alongside Herbie Hancock, vocalist Gretchen Parlato and percussionist Cyro Baptista. The recording is a good reminder of the impact of the original release -- Loueke's one-on-one improvisations facing Hancock and Baptista made the guitarist an overnight name in jazz -- but the material of greatest interest here is the six previously unheard solo acoustic performances by Louek, like the joyous "Abominwe."
