Joe Lovano, saxophonist and composer

Joe Lovano, CROSS CULTURE

Joe Lovano -]][- CROSS CULTURE –Mp3– [Blue Note, 2013]

On January 8, 2013, saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano will release Cross Culture, his 23rd Blue Note recording and the third consecutive release by his critically acclaimed quintet, Us Five. To celebrate the album’s release, Lovano will be taking Us Five out on an 11-city U.S. tour that launches January 19 and includes shows at The Mint in Los Angeles (January 22) and Yoshi’s in Oakland (January 24-26) before culminating with two nights at The Allen Room at Jazz At Lincoln Center in New York City (February 22-23).

Cross Culture is an 11-track tour de force that presents 10 of Lovano’s original compositions along with a stunning interpretation of the Billy Strayhorn ballad “Star Crossed Lovers.” Augmenting his core group (pianist James Weidman, bassists Esperanza Spalding or Peter Slavov, and drummers Otis Brown III and Francisco Mela) with the daring West African guitarist-and fellow Blue Note artist-Lionel Loueke, Lovano delivers his most fully realized representation of a career-long quest to explore the notion of universal musical language. -[Biography | Excerpt]-
