Re: “Thursday: Beninese guitarist Lionel Loueke kicks off Jazz Showcase engagement

This review is preposterous. You obviously have a very narrow range of acquaintance wih jazz guitar, such that any acoustic sound, no matter how far the musical textures it produces, reminds you of this one damn thing you didn't like.
Loueke's compositions are colorful and intriguing; his improvisation is articulate and melodic; his ability to hold a musical conversation with his band mates is phenomnenal.
Just go to the show and find out what modern jazz guitar, at it's best, could sound like.
