Performance Santa Fe presents
Charles Lloyd Ocean Trio


Six decades into his professional music career, saxophonist, flutist, composer, and bandleader Charles Lloyd shows no signs of slowing down! Lloyd combines post-bop, free jazz, psychedelic rock, folk, and traditional music in his original compositions to form “a strange and beautiful distillation of the American experience, part abandoned and wild, part immensely controlled and sophisticated.” (New York Times) Lloyd’s unique ability to weave many genres together, evidenced through collaborations with diverse artists such as Norah Jones, Willie Nelson, and the Beach Boys, has led him to widespread crossover acclaim. Returning to the Lensic following a 2016 performance at the New Mexico Jazz Festival, Lloyd returns alongside his Ocean Trio, with guitarist Anthony Wilson and pianist Gerald Clayton.
