Charles Lloyd - Voice in the Night Vinyl 2LP
Charles Lloyd Voice in the Night Vinyl 2LP
Released in 1999, Charles Lloyd's Voice In the Night was both a departure and a homecoming for the Memphis-born and California-based tenor sax player, introducing new music and revisiting archive favorites (including the epic 'Forest Flower'), and featuring an all-star line-up. With his 'Scandinavian' band on hold, this was Lloyd's first all-American album in a long while - Dave Holland qualifies as an honorary American by now - with all the differences of cultural emphasis that this implies.
ECM veteran John Abercrombie and legendary drummer Billy Higgins are in great form throughout as they lock in with Lloyd to tackle material ranging from Billy Strayhorn's 'A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing' to the Elvis Costello/Burt Bacharach-penned 'God Give Me Strength' or dig deep into the roots music of the 'Island Blues Suite'.
