Charles Lloyd

Jason Moran, piano
Reuben Rogers, bass
Eric Harland, drums

NEA Jazz Masters and recipient of the Ordre de Chevalier des Arts et Lettres, Charles Lloyd continues to elevate the art form with each performance and recording. One of the living legends of jazz, Lloyd is most famously known for his classic quartet in the mid-1960s with Jack DeJohnette, Keith Jarret and Cecil McBee. He has played with nearly every jazz musician of note over the last six decades. At 84 years old, Lloyd is at the height of his powers and is as prolific as ever. His “New Quartet” with Jason Moran, piano; Reuben Rogers, bass; and Eric Harland, drums has three recordings: Rabo de Nube (2008, ECM) voted #1 recording for the 2008 Jazz Times Reader's and Critic's Poll; Mirror (2010, ECM); and Passin’ Thru on Blue Note Records (2017).
