The label has announced that HH from Loueke performing the music of Herbie Hancock, will be released in the autumn. Loueke says; ''I have been playing with the master Herbie Hancock for more than 15 years, and still it wasn’t easy to work on his music because the originals are already so beautiful and he keeps developing them every time we play on stage.
