Many critics have opined that Lloyd’s “New Quartet”, with Jason Moran, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland may be the best of all his groups. The quartet’s previous release in this line-up, the live-recorded Rabo de Nube, met with across-the-board approval and was voted #1 album of the year in both the Critics and Readers Polls of JazzTimes.
The Quartet has toured extensively since the September release of Mirror both in the states and abroad. Early in the new year they will again hit the road in the USA:
January 20 – Hanover, NH – Hopkins Center D artmouth College
January 21 and 22 – Boston, MA – Regattabar
January 23 – Burlington, VT – Flynn Center
January 25 – Amherst, MA – U Mass
January 28 – Middletown, CT – Wesleyan Univ.
January 29 – New York, NY – JALC – Rose Theater
January 30 – Buffalo, NY – Albright-Knox Gallery
And later in the year:
June 3 – Chicago, IL – Orchestra Hall – Charles Lloyd Quartet + Zakir Hussain
