Charles Lloyd

Charles Lloyd is one of Modern Jazz's great surviving sax legends, along with Sonny Rollins, Pharoah Sanders and Wayne Shorter. Lloyd's New Quartet includes Jason Moran on keys, Rueben Rogers on bass, and Eric Harland on drums. Lloyds recent release on Blue Note, Passin' Thru, features six original Lloyd compositions going back to 1963. Fans of Straight Ahead Jazz on WCLK can hear cuts from Passin' Thru Monday-Friday overnights 10pm-2am on Serenade To The City, and also on Jazz Tones with Jay Edwards, Sunday afternoons 3pm-7pm.

The first in a series of Jazz compilations from the historical catalog of Resonance Records, Jazz Haunts & Magic Vaults: The New Lost Classics of Resonance Records, Volume 1 features 14 selections of rare finds from some of the most iconic Jazz figures of all time such as:  Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Shirley Horn, Freddie Hubbard, Charles Lloyd, Sarah Vaughan, Wes Montgomery, Larry Young and others.  Resonance Records is doing a great job of unearthing lost Jazz classics.

National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jazz Master, Saxophonist, Charles Lloyd is joined by Bill Frisell, Norah Jones and Willie Nelson among others, on his new release from Blue Note I Long To See You.  Lloyd is one of my favorites, and has stood the test of time in Jazz.  He has played as a sideman with everyone from Howlin' Wolf and B. B. King to Cannonball Adderley, where he was a member of that legendary sextet.
