Charles Lloyd - Filling the French Summer air with Cool.

Over to France this week for one of the many Jazz festivals that went on in Europe this past summer. Charles Lloyd and His "New Quartet" at the Charlie Jazz Festival in Vitrolles France on July 1, 2011. The concert was recorded by Radio France as part of its Jazz Club weekly series (an amazing series of interviews, concerts and rarities - check 'em out).

Here's the lineup and particulars via Radio France:

Domaine de Fontblanche
13127 Vitrolles
dans le cadre du Charlie Jazz Festival

Charles Lloyd New Quartet

The concert runs around 90 minutes and was live from the stage on July 1, 2011. It also includes an interview with Charles Lloyd for the first 10 or so minutes.

A great concert and a good way to end the week by one of the legendary figures in Jazz.
