Charles Lloyd & Chico Hamilton Quintet: The Complete 1960-1961 Sessions (CD: Phono, 2CDs)Charles Lloyd & Chico Hamilton Quintet: The Complete 1960-1961 Sessions (CD: Phono, 2CDs)
This edition contains, for the first time on a single set, the complete 1960-61 sessions that marked the earliest collaborations of Charles Lloyd and Chico Hamilton. Presented here in chronological order and, FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CD IN THEIR STEREO VERSIONS, the dates originally appeared on the LPs The Chico Hamilton Special (Columbia CL1619/CS8419) and Selections from ‘Bye Bye Birdie’/ ‘Irma La Douce’ (Columbia CL1590/CS8390). The two 1961 tracks, which had never previously appeared on CD, were originally released on the rare compilation LPs Who’s Who in the Swinging Sixties (Columbia CS8565) and Jingle Bell Jazz (Columbia CS8693).

The music here is particularly interesting in that Charles Lloyd is the only horn heard throughout these recordings, while on most of their other collaborations the cello was replaced by a trombone player. The complete 1962 Hamilton/Lloyd album Drumfusion (Columbia CS8607), featuring Garnett Brown on trombone, plus the only alternative take from that session (originally released on the LP compilation The Giants of Jazz (-CS 8770), have been added here as a bonus.

Charles Lloyd & Jason Moran: Hagar's Song (CD: ECM)
“Hagar’s Song”, the newest release from long-time ECM luminary Charles Lloyd, is an interactive duo recording with Jason Moran, the pianist who has been a key member of Lloyd’s latter-day quartet, contributing to the albums Rabo de Nube (2008), Mirror (2010) and Athens Concert (2012). The album features pieces especially dear to Lloyd, ranging from compositions by Billy Strayhorn (“Pretty Girl” a/k/a “Star-Crossed Lovers”), Duke Ellington (“Mood Indigo”), George Gershwin (“Bess, You Is My Woman Now”) and Earl Hines (“Rosetta”) to a standard strongly associated with Billie Holiday (“You’ve Changed”), Brian Wilson’s most famous Beach Boys ballad (“God Only Knows”) and a Bob Dylan song definitively interpreted by the Band (“I Shall Be Released”), played in memory of the late Levon Helm. The centerpiece of the set is the title suite composed by Lloyd and dedicated to his great-great-grandmother, who was taken from her home in south Mississippi at age 10 and sold to a slave-owner in Tennessee. “When I learned the story of her life it moved me very deeply,” says Lloyd. “The suite mirrors the stages of her life; loss of family, loneliness and the unknown, dreams, sorrow, and songs to her newborn children.” (ECM Records)

NEA Jazz Master saxophonist and musical truth-seeker Charles Lloyd reconvenes his remarkable New Quartet with pianist Jason Moran, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Eric Harland and takes us on another mystical journey with this live recording of Lloyd's original compositions. For his latest Blue Note offering, the passionate live recording Passin’ Thru, Lloyd reunites his enduring New Quartet featuring pianist Jason Moran, Rogers, and Harland, a simpatico unit that teems with intuition, contemplation and romping playfulness. Produced by Lloyd and Dorothy Darr, the album is a dynamic seven-song collection of Lloyd compositions that range from the swinging and gleeful title track (first recorded in 1963 when he was a member of the Chico Hamilton Quintet) to the sober and longing new piece, “Shiva Prayer,” written in commemoration of a dear friend, to whom the album is dedicated.
