Charles Lloyd Quartet

Available in 88.2 kHz / 24-bit AIFF and FLAC high-resolution audio formats

"Five Stars ... (Lloyd) is now known as a moving ballad player with a uniquely gauzy and vulnerable sound, but with rougher free jazz diversions ... his strongest quartet ... one of 2010's major contenders."
- The Guardian

"... the band is fabulous in its understatement ... while the standards are impressive, Lloyd’s originals are at least as organic and more experimental. Contemplative and melodic, Mirror finds Lloyd equally authoritative and open, nothing musical left to prove. His bandmates, far younger than the saxophonist, match him in musical wisdom."
- JazzTimes.com

"Five Stars ... there's the sense here of creating a kind of healing music in a time of need. As a whole the tunes themselves are pared back, the tempos cooled and little surprises hidden within the gems of familiar melodies. From one perspective, the album is a self-portrait of Lloyd and his music. From the other, it's a step forward from a great working band that continues to evolve. Regardless, it's a lovely collection of music."
- All About Jazz

Saxophonist Charles Lloyd leads an exceptional quartet featuring pianist Jason Moran, double bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland on originals and familiar material that is reappraised and transformed. There are also a couple of superb Thelonious Monk covers and a beautiful, free arrangement of the Beach Boys’ Caroline, No. The songs are packed with Lloyd’s graceful, mellifluous and poetic tenor sax as well as his rarely-showcased alto saxophone, floating above the fluid interaction between piano, bass and drums.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
