Music & Spirtuality with Charles Lloyd
Join jazz host George Thomas tonight for a conversation with Saxophonist Charles Lloyd. In his first visit to Vermont, Charles Lloyd and his new quartet are at The Hop this week: Wednesday afternoon Lloyd is joined by friend and former US Poet Laureate, Charles Simic, for a conversation on the spirit of jazz and poetry. Thursday afternoon, Lloyd and members of the New Quartet coach a student jazz combo. And tickets are still available to see Charles Lloyd and the New Quartet perform at the Hopkins Center Thursday night.
Tickets are also available to see the band Sunday at the Flynn.
Lloyd's latest CD, called Mirror, includes rich original compositions and gospel standards.
Listen tonight at 9 as he talks with George Thomas about the connection between music and spirituality.
From Lloyd's web page: "Music is a healing force. It has the ability to transcend boundaries, it can touch the heart directly, it can speak to a depth of the spirit where no words are needed. It is a most powerful form of communication and expression of beauty."
