Charles Lloyd parece estar a tocar melhor do que nunca, de uma forma cada vez mais intensa, inevitavelmente lírica e bela.

   Tendo-se mudado para Los Angeles em 1956, integrou o grupo do baterista Chico Hamilton em 1960, cuja direção musical rapidamente assumiu.

   Em 1964, mudou-se para Nova Iorque, tendo integrado o grupo de Cannonball Addderley e gravado os seus primeiros dois álbuns como líder, com Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter e Tony Williams, a secção rítmica de Miles Davis.

   Entre 1965 e 1969, liderando o seu famoso quarteto com Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee e Jack DeJohnette, Charles Lloyd atingiu uma popularidade semelhante à de uma pop star, tendo sido distinguido, em 1967, como “Jazz Artist of the Year” pelos críticos da DownBeat.

   No início da década de ‘70, Lloyd gravou com os The Doors e com os Beach Boys, grupo com o qual efetuou várias digressões.

   A partir de 1986, Lloyd tem-se dedicado à música com uma intensidade e uma persistência difíceis de igualar, tendo desde então gravado 16 álbuns para a ECM e, a partir de 2015, dois para a Blue Note, um dos quais com Bill Frisell e outro com Gerald Clayton.

   É com Clayton, Reuben Rogers e Eric Harland a seu lado que teremos a oportunidade de confirmar os motivos pelos quais Carlos Santana afirma que “Charles Lloyd is an international treasure”.

The critical consensus is that Charles Lloyd has never sounded better. The depth of his expression reflects a lifetime of experience and soulful dedication to beauty.

 

   Lloyd has a legendary history in the music world, and could certainly be in a position to slow down and rest on his laurels. But looking back has never been of great interest to this tender warrior. His concerts and recordings are events of pristine beauty and elegance, full of intensely felt emotion and passion that touches deep inside the heart. This is not entertainment, but the powerful uncorrupted expression of beauty through music. When music vibrates, the soul vibrates and touches the spirit within.

   Leading his quartet with the pianist Gerald Clayton, the bassist Reuben Rogers and the drummer Eric Harland, we will now be able to understand why Carlos Santana says that “Charles Lloyd is an international treasure”, Tim Dickeson of Jazz Wise magazine asserted that “Lloyd (…) is now probably the legend of sax to see live” and Ben Ratliff believes that “his shows, full of momentum and intuition, perfectly represent the idea that the best jazz needs to be experienced live” (The New York Times).

Charles Lloyd is an international treasure.

Carlos Santana

 

Charles represents a type of musician and an era of musicians that is almost extinct.

Jason Moran

 

Lloyd is now probably the legend of sax to see live...

Jazz Wise

 

Lloyd is one of the greats, rather like Joan Miró in modern art, he has no peer save himself. Music of total transport and delight.

Jazz Wise

 

He’s expansive in his musical discourse yet without a wasted note.

Wall Street Journal

 

(...) a daunting listening experience (...) The listener is taken on a journey through gravity-less improvisational space (...) that journey was illuminated by one musical enlightenment after another.

Los Angeles Times

 

His shows, full of momentum and intuition, perfectly represent the idea that the best jazz needs to be experienced live.

The New York Times

 

One of the genre’s most visionary, innovative figures.
