Spiritual jazz saxophone legend Charles Lloyd takes us on a journey that explores the realms of wonder and beauty.

Tonight accompanied by a powerful band featuring Gerald Clayton on piano, Reuben Rogers on double-bass and Kendrick Scott on drums, he performs music from a career spanning over six decades.

Cemented as one of the greats of our time, Charles Lloyd has worked with jazz, blues and rock giants including B.B. King, Ornette Coleman, The Byrds, The Grateful Dead and many more. From his early albums for Atlantic through his great recordings for ECM and now Blue Note Records, he has never stopped experimenting with new sounds, new techniques and new collaborations.

Support comes from septet Nérija, made up of stars of the London jazz scene Sheila Maurice-Grey, Cassie Kinoshi, Rosie Turton, Shirley Tetteh, Lizy Exell Rio Kai and Josephine Davies.

Performance subject to government guidance.

Produced by the Barbican in association with EFG London Jazz Festival 2021.
