'Joe Lovano's Village Rhythms Band'

A chance meeting with Fela back in the '80s planted a seed in the saxophonist's head. Fans know he's got big ears, and the opportunity to dance towards the nexus of Nigerian grooves and jazz improv has finally arrived. He's an investigator, so this quintet with Matt Garrison's cagey electric bass mixing with the kora strings of Abdou Mboup is unlike any Lovano configuration of late. Here's to new horizons.
