“One of the greatest saxophonists on the planet…never out of touch with his audience.”—BBC Radio 3
Since 1960, Lloyd has lent his adventurous, lyrical sound to everyone from Cannonball Adderly and Keith Jarrett to The Beach Boys. His early experiments blending jazz and rock charted a path that led to the electric fusion of Miles Davis and Headhunters, while his exploration of spirituality and transcendental meditation added a new depth to his sound. Lloyd moves from hard swing to subtle ballads, blending gorgeous textures and Eastern influences. With Gerald Clayton piano, Joe Sanders bass, Gerald Cleaver drums.
