Charles Lloyd was named an NEA Jazz Master in 2015, and for good reason: BBC Radio 3 called him “one of the greatest saxophonists on the planet, never afraid of experiment, but never out of touch with his audience.” With legendary collaborators like Cannonball Adderley and Keith Jarrett, and blockbuster records like 1967’s Forest Flower with his eponymous quartet, this jazz lifer has proven himself a versatile and generous sideman as well as a trailblazing bandleader.
Lloyd comes to Duke Performances with The Marvels, a group that pairs him with another legendary collaborator: the great Bill Frisell, “one of the most distinctive and original improvising guitarists of our time” (The New York Times). The Marvels' 2016 Blue Note album I Long to See You featured elegant takes on American hymns, folk anthems, and protest songs. NPR called their collaboration “music that evokes an uncommon state of grace.”
