Master saxophonist returns to the scene of his 2011 Strings of Autumn triumph

After an unforgettable concert of Charles Lloyd in 2011 at Strings of Autumn, the legendary saxophonist returns to Prague with his stellar quintet.

Lloyd’s career can have few parallels: from his early days playing in the bands of blues greats like Howlin’ Wolf and B.B. King, to his engagement with Cannonball Adderley’s quartet in the sixties, to subsequently forming a succession of his own groups, which over the years have featured some of the finest players  in jazz: from Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette to Jason Moran.

His experimental nature and musical curiosity have seen him cross over into both rock (The Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Beach Boys) and world music. Lloyd’s current quintet maintains his reputation as a leader of top-notch bands: it includes Gerald Clayton on piano, Marvin Sewell on guitar, and Harish Raghavan on bass, while the great Eric Harland returns on drums.
