Saxophonist Charles Lloyd is a forward-thinking musician's musician whose supreme improvisational talents and interest in cross-pollinating jazz with rock as well as non-Western styles of music during the '60s and 1970s established him as one of the key figures in the development of fusion and world music. Recipient of the 2013 Miles Davis Award from the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Lloyd emerged in the 1960s and became a crossover star, leading a quartet that introduced Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette, and Cecil McBee to the world.
At the height of his near rock star fame, he retreated to the seclusion of Big Sur, California, and lived the contemplative life of a hermit for over a decade. He returned briefly in the early 1980s to launch the career of French pianist Michel Petrucciani then retreated again for nearly another decade. Lloyd’s 1990 recording Fish Out of Water on ECM Records marked his full return to performing and recording.
