Lieko Quintet is a Manchester-based group turning contemporary jazz on its head with melodic, groove-infused compositions. Treading a path somewhere between soul music and folk song, they use melody as a focal point for moving between riff-based interplay and free-form improvisation. When blended together with the rhythmic precision of old school funk and cathartic energy of Nigerian Afrobeat, the result is a brain-melting concoction of new-world explorations.
If you’re not already dancing, they’ll pull the proverbial rug out from underneath your feet, and get you moving in places you never even knew existed.
"...intriguing and intelligent arrangements..."
