4.0 out of 5 stars ON REFLECTION A GREAT ALBUM, 11 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mirror (Audio CD)
There is always magic in the air whenever Charles Lloyd issues an album,a true innovator l;ike LLoyd always pushes the envelope to the edge,and this force majure is no exception,there is something for everyone on this album,be it old,new,borrowed or blues.
The quartet is Charles LLoyd Tenor and Alto sax,Vocals,Jason Moran Piano,Reuben Rogers Double Basss and Eric Harland Drums.voice and th playing is fantastic,with the sound weaving beautifully textured."La Lorona " and a masterful version of Brian Wilsons "Caroline No" are prime examples of a man at his peak,showing that after years in the industry Charles has lost none of his zest for music.
The album also contains a couple of reworkings "Lift every voice and sing"and "The water is wide" both of which still feature in his live set.
Theolonius Monks'" Monks Mood" is hanled tenderly as well
"Mirror"is the title track and is perhaps the most immediate of the new self penned tunesand in some ways reminds me of "Georgia on my mind"great bass lines on this as well
"Ruby my dear" has some delightful piano,bass and sax interplay
so there you have it then another great album from Mr LLoyd.
