Boston Jazz Performance January 2016 - Charles Lloyd & The Marvels

by Jen
(Boston, MA, USA)

WHO: Charles Lloyd & The Marvels
WHAT: Jazz performance
WHEN: January 31, 2016 7:30-9:30pm
WHERE: Berklee Performance Center
WHY: From his association with Calvin Newborn in Memphis to Gabor Szabo to John Abercrombie and now, Bill Frisell, Charles Lloyd has long had a deep affinity with the guitar and the multitude of moods and sounds that it brings to his music. In this unique formation of the Marvels, Lloyd pairs two of his favorite partners, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland, with two great guitarists, Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz.

Celebrating the January 15th release of Lloyd’s new recording for Blue Note Records, I Long To See You, the group explores such rich canonical texts of the great American songbook from “Shenandoah” and “Abide With Me,” to Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War,” to Lloyd classics like “Sombrero Sam,” “Island Blues,” and “Of Course, Of Course.” The mood is celebratory from the start, with Lloyd displaying his knack for threading complex, dynamic musical ideas into the most elemental and open-hearted of riffs and melodies.

Free preperformance talk with Grammy-winning author and journalist Bob Blumenthal at 6:30pm in the Davis Room, 2nd floor of the Berklee Performance Center. Seating is limited, reservations strongly suggested. Doors open at 6:15pm.
