During the late 60s, saxophonist Charles Lloyd established rather successful quartet with pianist Keith Jarrett, drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Cecil McBee. Both Jarrett and DeJohnette would go on to join Miles Davis, before establishing the iconic Keith Jarrett Trio. Lloyd himself is considered one of the first crossover artists in jazz, drawing influence from both avant-garde and rock genres.
On this episode, we'll hear the quartet on their best setting albums, titled Forest Flower. It was recorded just over 50 years ago at the 1966 Monterey Jazz Festival, and it became one of the first jazz records to sell over 1 million copies.
