About the show
Playing tracks by
Charles Lloyd .
This show features the incredibly cool Mr Charles Lloyd who after a phenomenally successful career in the late 60s gave it all up to teach transcendental meditation until he was coaxed back to jazz in the late 80s.
The tracks tonight are all from Lloyd's releases on the ECM lable which he has been with since 1990. He has had a number of combinations of players with him since that time and the selections aim to show the wide variety of his playing from 1991 to 2008.
I was hoping to showcase his new album "Mirror" on the show however it had not arrived from the distributors by the time of the show's broadcast.
