iTunes Review

Veteran saxophonist Charles Lloyd impressed with his 2008 release, Rabo de Nube, an album that featured a crack quartet composed of Lloyd, pianist Jason Moran, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Eric Harland. The 2010 follow-up, Mirror, has the same group on board, and the album does not disappoint: the playing is sharply focused and the choice of material is superb. Lloyd, best known for his work on tenor saxophone, pulls out his alto for a tender rendition of “I Fall In Love Too Easily.” The Los Angeles native was a guest artist on albums by West Coast rock bands such as the Doors, Canned Heat, and the Beach Boys; here he covers the lovely Brian Wilson song “Caroline, No” in a swinging, lyrical version. Two pieces by Thelonious Monk, “Monk’s Mood” and “Ruby, My Dear,” are played with great sensitivity; the traditional “The Water Is Wide” is imbued with deep gospel and blues feeling; and “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is taken outside in joyful fashion. The album closes with “Tagi,” one of four Lloyd originals, which includes a meditative spoken-word performance by Lloyd, who also plays blissed-out tones on his horn.

EXCELLENT BALLADS & ANTHEMS: STANDARDS & ORIGINALS

Excellent performances! Bringing heat to ballads, blues, spirituals & anthems. Legendary tenor saxophone titan Charles LLoyd with his 'super group' of Jason Moran on piano, Reuben Rogers on bass & Eric Harland on drums. Cutting a wide swath from the Beach Boys "Caroline, No" thru 2 Monk ballads, gospel & spiritual songs to some notable standards & anthems. Charles Lloyd is better than ever!

It's been a long time since I've been so moved by an album. This is deep and emotional and reminds me of his earlier collaborations with jarret and dejohnette.

very good album

Great musicianship... Highly recommended.
