Iconic, innovative saxophonist Charles Lloyd returns to Jazz at Lincoln Center as a 2015 NEA Jazz Master. Often called a "musician's musician" and compared to John Coltrane, Lloyd was one of the first jazz artists to sell over a million copies of a record with his song "Forest Flower." He's played with everyone from Cannonball Adderly to the Doors, and his supreme improvisational talents and passion for cross-pollinating jazz with rock, as well as non-Western styles of music during the '60s and '70s established him as one of the key figures in the development of fusion and world music. Lloyd comes to New York with a unique formation of the Marvels, pairing two of his favorite partners, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland, with two great guitarists, Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz. At this Appel Room session, expect to hear pieces from Lloyd's new Blue Note release I Long to See You.
