Saxophonist, flutist, composer, and bandleader Charles Lloyd has assembled a sizable catalog since he left Cannonball Adderley's band in the early 1960s. While most of his early recordings for Atlantic are now considered slight in contrast to his later ones, especially those from his longstanding tenure with ECM Records, they do deserve to be heard and debated once more in the 21st century as truly compelling, even groundbreaking works of the period. In fact, while Lloyd wasn't the first jazz musician to play Bill Graham's Fillmore Auditorium (John Handy was), he was the first jazzman to connect with the record-buying rock audiences of the late '60s without embracing rock music as a form (some of that came later during his Blue Thumb period). This double-disc anthology from Rhino UK does an excellent job of presenting to the listener a very solid, consistent overview of the years when Lloyd's quartet were making their mark; they became near rock stars with young people in the United States and Europe, and critical darlings of the jazz world simultaneously -- something unheard of during that period. The albums Dream Weaver, Forest Flower, Charles Lloyd in Europe, The Flowering, Love-In, Journey Within, Soundtrack, and Charles Lloyd in the Soviet Union are all represented here. They are equally divided between live and studio offerings. Lloyd's quartet remained all but constant during this period as well. His young pianist Keith Jarrett and drummer Jack DeJohnette, feature on every recording here; bassist Ron McClure was replaced by Cecil McBee for the later recordings -- the two groups are divided by disc on this set. These recordings, whether they be older Lloyd originals such as "Forest Flower," (that dated back to his days with Chico Hamilton's group) or newer compositions, such as the very first recorded version of Jarrett's "Sorcery," are played with enthusiasm, fire, gentility, and a keen sense of the emerging Eastern modalities in Lloyd's sound; these would remain with him throughout his career, and have been explored most recently with his group Tangam. The only problem with this compilation is that it isn't complete, but it is a solid tease for picking up all of the Atlantic sides because literally all are worthy of owning. The sound is 24-bit remastered and there is an excellent historical essay in the liners by Jazzwise editor Jon Newey.

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

Lee Morgan, Breathless

Highs (his recordings) and lows (in his personal life). Lee Morgan was THE greatest trumpeter on the Blue Note label. A career that was brought to a shuddering halt by his ex-wife's gun…

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.
