Charles Lloyd

Charles Lloyd Charles Lloyd is one of the most important and influential tenor saxophone artists of all time. Launching his career working with jazz greats such as Cannonball Adderly, Keith Jarrett and Joe Zawinul, Charles was a pioneering, genre crossing musician playing with pop and rock acts such as the Byrds and the Beach Boys and sharing bills with Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and the Grateful Dead. He’s celebrating his 80th birthday performing with friends at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival this weekend, a concert sponsored by McEvoy Ranch, so we thought it appropriate to post Charles Lloyd playlist of some of his work.
