EVENT NOTES:
This film is a recording of a concert at the Jazztopad Festival, Wroclaw, Poland, November 2017.

Sponsored by Richard Thurston

A concert film of the sax titan’s remarkable multimedia work about his great-grandmother Sallie Sunflower Whitecloud’s refusal to walk the “Trail of Tears.” Performed with strings, chorus, and an ensemble that includes guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Harish Raghavan, percussionist Kendrick Scott, and guitarist Greg Leisz.

Mr. Lloyd is the rare jazz artist whose every appearance qualifies as an event… Mr. Lloyd sets the pace, and this performance conveyed much of what you’d need to know about his values as an artist: soulfulness, mindfulness, generosity, balance… His improvisations carried the hallmarks of a language steeped in history: bebop, softened with a slouch; filtered through a personal lens; down-home blues, translated into worldly spirit talk.” New York Times
