Charles Lloyd New Quartet 'Passin' Thru' 2xLP
NEA Jazz Master saxophonist and musical truth-seeker Charles Lloyd reconvenes his remarkable New Quartet with pianist Jason Moran, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Eric Harland and takes us on another mystical journey with this live recording of Lloyd's original compositions. Produced by Lloyd and Dorothy Darr, the album is a dynamic seven-song collection of Lloyd compositions that range from the swinging and gleeful title track (first recorded in 1963 when he was a member of the Chico Hamilton Quintet) to the sober and longing new piece, “Shiva Prayer,” written in commemoration of a dear friend, to whom the album is dedicated.
