Product Description

In his 66th year, the great saxophone player from Memphis, Tennessee, releases his 11th album on ECM, full of vital, urgent new music with his new quartet. The album is almost entirely comprised of Lloyd originals, with the notable exception of a fourteen minute meditation on Jacques Brel's 'Ne Me Quitte Pas', and the beautiful Duke Ellington ballad 'Come Sunday'. 2005.

While this is a quartet recording, some of the most thrilling moments on the disc are when the four members are interacting in pairs. The title track opens with drummer Eric Harland and Lloyd, the bass enters briefly, and then only the trap set continues in duet with pianist Geri Allen. Lloyd's compositions move from post-bop melodicism ("Ken Katta Ma Om") to the seemingly ancient bearing of folk-like figures ("Angel Oak Revisited"). Allen in particular is a stimulating springboard for the leader. She has played with him since the beginning of this decade, and the breadth of playing is showcased in the new writing. The sheer variety of this set is stunning, as the quartet steps from continent to continent with intoxicating confidence. --David Greenberger
