Released:
Label: Blue Note Records
The Ivory Coast-born guitarist's career has been marked by the smart fusion of sparkling Afro-pop and post-bop. With Heritage, Loueke's band -- featuring Robert Glasper and members of the Glasper's Experiment -- is an excellent vehicle for his most focused exploration of personal history and the troubling cross-cultural ties between Africa and the Americas. Though Loueke's compositions have always grooved hard, Glasper and co. add a soul-oriented vernacular, with lots of Fender Rhodes and R&B flourish. Gretchen Parlato on "Tribal Dance" and "Hope" make the record's most satisfying moments.
