Charles Lloyd Quartet at Vancouver International Jazz Festival at Vogue Theatre
“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.
Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville St
