Charles Lloyd

About

Charles Lloyd’s influence dates back to the 1960s, when his groundbreaking early recordings established him as one of the first jazz musicians to sell more than one million records.

The Memphis-born saxophonist and flautist formed his first quartet in 1965 with the now legendary pianist Keith Jarrett, bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Their stunning crossover recording Forest Flower made Lloyd an international star.
