Charles Lloyd

Jane Getz, Charles Lloyd, Paul Motian, Ron McClure

 Although Paul Motian never recorded (that I know of) with Charles Lloyd, he toured with him quite a bit and wrote about it. I'll be playing from the 1970 album 'The Best of Charles Lloyd', reading from Paul's autobiography and playing some new Charles Lloyd. Tune in to hear what else I come up with.
