Lionel Loueke - Karibu


I'm incredibly excited to share the news about the release of Lionel Loueke's debut album on Blue Note Records,Karibu.  Not only did I get to record with my favorite musicians and friends, Lionel and Ferenc, but also had the incredible fortune to have two legendary special guests recording with us: Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. Anecdote: Herbie, notorious for being at the cutting edge of technology, one day during the recording showed off his latest gadget - the newly released iPhone.  When we were done that night at the studio, Ferenc and I immediately made a beeline for the Apple store, which luckily for us is open late, and bought our very first iPhones.
