Charles Lloyd & the Marvels + Lucinda Williams: Vanished Gardens

Read "Vanished Gardens" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano

Read "Charles Lloyd: Un viaggio che parte da lontano" reviewed by Roberto Ottaviano

Collezionare i suoi dischi, osservare la sua figura attraverso i reportage fotografici, leggerne le storie e cercare di ricostruire attraverso una serie di particolari legati alla sua musica, ai suoi gruppi, la filosofia di quest'uomo, mi ha aiutato a vivere ...
