With Lionel Louéké, at the New Morning, last Thursday

Avec Lionel Louéké

I had the pleasure of listening to Lionel Louéké at the New Morning last Thursday. An evening full of emotion, because it was the first time we had met since the ÎloJazz concert in Pointe-à-Pitre in… 2013 !! A superb concert, with the Congolese singer Helmie Bellini and her Kongo Square 5tet as the opening act. Lionel presented his new album Gaia there. In anyway, we were very happy to see each other again, especially since Arnaud Dolmen was also there. And then at the New Morning, you always meet old acquaintances with pleasure. And so I was surprised to meet Steve Browman, an outstanding pianist who lived in Guadeloupe for a long time before now relocating to the United States, and Jowee Omicil, a prodigious saxophonist who briefly joined us at a concert at Baiser Salé some time ago. Here are some bad pictures (sorry for the quality)!
