CHARLES LLOYD, ZAKIR HUSSAIN ON THE ROAD

Charles Lloyd arrives in Europe in November with an intriguing new project, a trio in which his sax flies over the beats and pulses supplied by incomparable tabla master Zakir Hussain and by traps drummer Eric Harland, the young player who has drawn praise for his work with McCoy Tyner as well as with the Lloyd Quartet.

The saxophone and double percussion group came together to play tribute concerts, on America’s West Coast, in memory of Billy Higgins, and all three musicians, inspired by the combination, wanted to keep the project going. Having heard live tapes, we can say with some conviction that the trio will be one of the big hits of this year’s Berlin Jazz Festival. They play the Hause der Berliner Festspiele on November 7th.

Other dates are: Vienna, Porgy & Bess club (November 4), Mannheim, Alte Feuerwache (November 5), Seville, Teatro Central (November 9), Rome, Auditorium della Musica (November 10), Istanbul, Is Sanat Theater (November 11), Barcelona, Teatre National Catalayuna.

Charles Lloyd’s most recent ECM release is “Which Way Is East”.
