5 AV 6 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SVENSKA DAGBLADET

"Det vilar en mjuk och fjäderlätt atmosfär över saxofonisten Charles Lloyds musik. Den är förförisk men kan också vara förledande. På flera av Lloyds sextiotalsskivor saknar jag för egen del en rotfastare attack. Det svävande svävar lätt iväg i ett uttryck utan fäste. Men allt föll på plats när Charles Lloyd började spela in för ECM för tjugo år sedan. Lättheten, tystnaderna och den öppnare andningen har smält samman i en organisk form, som skapar sin egen nödvändighet. Samspelet mellan Lloyd och pianisten Jason Moran tar form i en antydd, rytmisk rymd, lättheten blir intensivt förtätad."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

"Charles is playing really beautiful," Ornette Coleman says, in the documentary film "The Monk and the Mermaid". "He's expressing the qualities of what we experience. Trying to make a contribution to the quality of life, to do with knowledge." The knowledge, experience, or wisdom conveyed through Lloyd's tender saxophone soliloquies has drawn great musicians to him over the decades, and contributed to a reputation as one of the most insightful band leaders in all of jazz. Those qualities are reflected once more in "Mirror", which is perhaps as succinct a portrait of Charles music as can be embraced by a single disc.

"Charles approaches the music with such openness", pianist Jason Moran said recently "I like playing with leaders who let you bring what you've got to the table, and interpret the music however you'd like. Charles is a great promoter of free-thinking music, and letting it develop on the spot."

"Mirror" is the first studio album by the Lloyd-Moran-Rogers-Harland unit and it features beautiful, transformed versions of favourites including both Lloyd originals and tunes Charles has made his own over the years. There is a pair of Thelonious Monk tunes, "Ruby, My Dear" and "Monk's Mood", as well as hymns and traditionals including "Go Down Moses", "Lift Every Voice And Sing", and "The Water Is Wide". Lloyd covers Brian Wilson's' "Caroline, No" (the saxophonist guested on several Beach Boys albums in the 70s, including the classic "Surf's Up"), and plays an achingly lovely version of the the standard "I Fall In Love Too Easily". Lloyd originals include "Desolation Sound", "Mirror", "Tagi" (which includes a spoken-word meditation by Lloyd) and "Being and Becoming".

There is plenty of Lloyd's graceful, mellifluous and poetic tenor sax: We also get to hear some of his rarely-showcased alto saxophone, the instrument that Billy Higgins called Charles's "secret weapon".

Many critics have opined that Lloyd's "New Quartet", with Jason Moran, Reuben Rogers and Eric Harland may be the best of all his groups. The quartet's previous release in this line-up, the live-recorded "Rabo de Nube", met with across-the-board approval and was voted #1 album of the year in both the Critics and Readers Polls of Jazz Times.
