Charles Lloyd & Friends

When: Wed., Jan. 27, 7 p.m. 2016

In 2015, the National Endowment for the Arts wrote of musician Charles Lloyd, “Whether playing standards, avant-garde or world music, Lloyd’s emotional, elegant playing spurs on his fellow musicians.” The saxophonist doesn’t disappoint, hitting the stage with leading jazz guitarist and frequent collaborator Bill Frisell, drummer Eric Harland and bassist Reuben Rogers. The Memphis-born wailer began playing as a child and found his groove in the 1960s, recording with the likes of the Doors, the Byrds and the Beach Boys. Now, at 77, the post-bopper continues to break new ground, as shown in his 2015 release Wild Man Dance. Die-hard fans: Head to campus early to hear Lloyd and Frisell riff on their celebrated careers.

Price: $17-40.
