More Info:

Two 1965 New York Concerts, Disc 1 recorded at Judson Hall & Disc 2 recorded at Slugs' Saloon. A remarkable and previously unrecorded quartet featuring three jazz giants: guitarist Gábor Szabó, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Pete La Roca.

Reviews:

'It was a specific time and place'; Lloyd told Manhattan Stories annotator Don Heckman. 'We all felt like the boundaries were being dissolved and we could do or try anything. This is a music of freedom and wonder -- we were young and on the move.'

The Judson Hall recording comes from the archives of Resonance founder George Klabin, whose trove has previously yielded treasures from Bill Evans and Jimmy Giuffre. The Slugs' performances were recorded by Bjorn von Schlebrugge, who accompanied Lloyd to his Manhattan gigs.

Deluxe 2 CD Digi-Pack Edition contains a rich booklet with liner notes by Stanley Crouch, Willard Jenkins, Don Heckman & Michael Cuscuna.

Mastered for CD and vinyl by Bernie Grundman. 

A must have for Charles Lloyd fans, jazz collectors & audiophiles!
