For over four decades, Lloyd has fronted some of the most profound and far-reaching ensembles of his time. Embraced by the psychedelic listeners of the '60s, Lloyd was one of the first million-selling jazz artists incorporating bop, world music and avant-garde elements into his sound. Since 1989, his performances and recordings have garnered him great acclaim as one of music's true living masters. Four days before celebrating his 70th birthday on March 15, 2008, Lloyd will release Rabo de Nube, his 12th recording for ECM and the first from his astounding new quartet.
