Charles Lloyd Quartet feat. B. Frisell, R. Rogers & K. Scott
In 1966, the American saxophonist Charles Lloyd turned up in Juan with an astounding rhythm section: a young Keith Jarrett on the piano (aged 21), Cecil McBee on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. « He had a huge sound, that I’d never heard in France. The tenor, the big thing, Coltrane, Rollins, that kind of volume, the bass line », wrote Frédéric Goaty (« Jazz Magazine »). The first jazz musician to sell more than one million copies of an album (« Forest Flower »), Charles Lloyd has shared stages with bands such as « The Doors », « Byrds », « The Beach Boys » and « Grateful Dead », considerably influencing other musicians, such as Miles Davis.
Signed up by ECM, he succeeded in developing his style, which combines permanent musical evolution with well-anchored tradition, by way of his partiality for jazz classics. « I’m always on the lookout for the perfect step between notes, that all-revealing sound. Until I’ve discovered it, I’ll have to keep looking! I can’t take anything for granted. » More precisely, the challenge, his challenge, consists in making clear and simple that which at first seems complex, practising alchemy between country music scales, certain blues melodies, the harmonies dear to Bartók and to Ellington, a John Coltrane-type of spiritual quest, the doleful air of a Portugese fado… Fifty-six years after his first concert on the stage of the Gould pine grove, Charles Lloyd is still amazing his audience!
