    Don't think I've seen his name mentioned here much. I think Lionel is one of a kind, definitely has his own thing going on harmonically and rhythmically. He has a phenomenal technique but only uses it when necessary. It's really nice to hear contemporary guitar playing that doesn't sound hugely informed by Kurt.

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah, Lionel is phenomenal. Love the clip with him and Herbie Hancock (forest something?), its absolutly amazing. Isnt Kurt Rosenwinkel sidekick Aaron Parks tune "Peaceful Warrior" dedicated to Lionel? I would love hearing Lionel team up with Ari Hoenig. Strange, unaplainable things probably would happen.

    Best, Sandemose

    Yeah, Virgin Forest is killer. I saw him play here in Dublin last year and it was one of the best gigs I've been to. The trio play incredibly and seem so comfortable with each other and are always trying things out, never formulaic.
