Sums up the sixties,
This review is from: Forest Flower: At Monterey (Audio CD)
Charles Lloyd's set at the Monterey festival summed up the end of the decade, full of love and joy and improvisation. The addition of Keith Jarrett's piano rendered it one of the best festival pieces of all time. The warmth of Lloyd's sax and the freedom of Jarrett's piano were an unsurpassed combination that brought to me, and many others, the spirit of the times. You didn't have to live on the "west coast" to know what was going on, you just had to pop it on your deck and drop the needle on the vinyl. Those days won't come again. Superb!

I agree its an enjoyable listen - just never ground breaking. Coltrane had a better sound and compositional and improvisational prowess. Buy the JC's first and if you have spare cash invest in this recording. Froth compared to JC.
