Konstantinos Papachristou: The Darkness Of A Fairy Tale

Read "The Darkness Of A Fairy Tale" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

This is far from the first jazz album to send some wandering soul on a voyage. Among others, Chris Potter's record The Sirens (ECM, 2013) was inspired by Homer's epic saga The Odyssey. Now comes Greek artist Konstantinos Papachristou with a very modern quest, wherein a man seeks the meaning of life amid our material distractions. ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Mirror

Read "Mirror" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Charles Lloyd è musicista che non deve dimostrare nulla a nessuno. Sta attraversando le vicende della musica afroamericana da più di cinquant'anni tra momenti di grande forza creativa e fasi più rilassate e convenzionali. E vanta diversi meriti tra cui quello di aver portato per primo in tournè in Europa un giovanissimo Keith Jarrett e di essere stato ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Mirror

Read "Mirror" reviewed by John Kelman

Sometimes the trust in knowing can yield more than the excitement of uncharted territory. Charles Lloyd ratchets down the energy from Rabo De Nube (ECM, 2008), one of the most exciting, free-wheeling albums and new groups of the saxophonist's half century career. Relying on the quartet's increasingly profound chemistry--and mostly recycled material rather than Rabo's largely ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Rabo de Nube

Read "Rabo de Nube" reviewed by Stuart Broomer

Charles Lloyd has an obvious knack for assembling bands; it's been apparent since he first launched his quartet in the mid '60s with Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette and Cecil McBee or Ron McClure. In the decades following he's often employed fine musicians with very different styles, including pianists Michel Petrucciani and Geri Allen, guitarist John Abercrombie ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Rabo De Nube

Read "Rabo De Nube" reviewed by John Kelman

Woodwind multi-instrumentalist Charles Lloyd has traversed considerable musical territory with nary a misstep across a dozen albums, since joining the ECM fold in 1989. Still, as undeniably fine as albums including Sangam (2006), Jumping the Creek (2005) and Which Way is East (2004) are, what Lloyd's been missing is a consistent line-up to rival his mid-1990s ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Rabo De Nube

Read "Rabo De Nube" reviewed by Chris May

It's fitting that the shimmeringly beautiful Rabo De Nube, which is being released to celebrate reed player Charles Lloyd's 70th birthday on March 15, 2008, is a live album. Lloyd became a star forty years ago with a series of paradigm-shifting live discs recorded on a seemingly never-ending tour of the USA and Europe--seven of them ...

Charles Lloyd Quartet: Jumping the Creek

Read "Jumping the Creek" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli

On the cover of Charles Lloyd's latest album, a solitary figure walks with some deliberation toward a vast expanse of sea. A series of lines converge at his right, appearing to box him in like one of Francis Bacon's popes. And so before even getting so far as inserting the disc in the player, the listener ...
