Celebrated world-roots-jazz band The Vampires celebrate their newest release The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke marking 10 years of performing together and collaborating with one of the world’s most talked about guitarists. Featuring four of Australia’s most awarded instrumentalists including saxophonist Jeremy Rose, trumpeter Nick Garbett, Thelonious Monk Institute alumnus bassist Alex Boneham, and drummer Alex Masso, the band has released five albums and toured relentlessly around Australia, the UK and Europe.
Combining risk-taking improvisation and sophisticated compositions the band has developed a style of its own that effortlessly combines influences from all corners of the world.
“If jazz music is about continuously reinventing and staying on your toes, then The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke’ is a phenomenal jazz record by a worldly, talented, and newly minted five-piece band.” 4 stars, Downbeat (US)
