"...I want to transform things
and make this a blissful
place. I dream of the day
when man can live in harmony.
There's still all that ugliness
out there and I want to
wipe it out with beauty..."

Charles Lloyd, tenor sax & flute
Keith Jarrett, piano
Ron McClure, bass
Jack DeJohnette, drums
A band briefly together in the late 60's, I know they made this recording and the beautiful Forest Flower but not sure what else. Not sure where it was recorded. Like Jarrett's best solo work of the 70's, a solid, funky foundation that goes pretty far out, but nothing you could call "free" or "out-", not to my ears. Gorgeous jazz for late nights or sunny days.
Side A - "Sombrero Sam", "Voice in the Night"
Side B - "Pre-Dawn", "Forest Flower '69"
