More ECM Records. Acquire, please legitimate discs, which no doubt will adorn your collection! With Lloyd, at the time of this writing, in his 77th year, the critics will tell you he has never sounded better. Indeed, meditation is an unavoidable flower in the field of his biography, as he famously walked away from the stage in the early s, only to return to the horn a decade later with formidable selflessness. This period also saw his association with producer Manfred Eicher take first flight.
Listening to these albums as a set, however, one realizes that his comeback was not the most important celebration. His truest essence as a musician remained cupped like a pocket of air in a lotus in which was contained a universe of song.
And so, to assert that Lloyd was at last going forward is to do his spirit a disservice. If anything, he was going inward. Lloyd speaks mostly in half-whispers, never louder than a private declaration, while the latter unfolds some of his softest playing on record. And yet we clearly see that in the recordings since his soul searching has never stopped, for it continues to inhabit every breath that passes his reed.
In this respect, we find here a spiritual level of jazz from artists all the more prodigious for their humility. In spite of their incendiary potential, they choose to cook rather than flare, each bringing his sensitivity to bear upon these insightful forays into melody and surrender. Tender to the utmost.
Smooth-as-caramel pianism widens the doors into a vista of reflection, even as Lloyd pins a tail to this comet with a ribbon of his own. Were the band to stop here, the album would already be a masterpiece.
