Charles Lloyd & Jason Moran at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Miner Auditorium

1 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2014-06-06 2014-06-06 35 Charles Lloyd & Jason Moran at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Miner Auditorium Night two of Jason Moran’s week pairs the modern piano master with saxophone icon Charles Lloyd, one of Moran’s musical mentors and leader of the acclaimed New Chares Lloyd Quartet, with whom the pianist has performed since 2007. Lloyd attained rock star status in the mid-60s with one of the all-time great quartets, featuring Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee and Jack DeJohnette. Since the release of that group’s Dream Weaver and Forest Flower, Lloyd has charted a remarkable trajectory as one of the most restlessly inventive musicians in jazz history. His sublime 2013 duet recording with Moran, Hagar’s Song, contains a mixture of re-imagined standards, pop gems and the title suite dedicated Lloyd’s great-great-grandmother, who was sold into slavery in the early 1800s. This album will be the jumping-off point for Lloyd and Moran, who have developed an instrumental telepathy that makes each shared moment into a poignant revelation.
