Charles Lloyd has shared “Monk’s Dance,” a joyful new single from his latest musical offering The Sky Will Still Be There Tomorrow. The majestic double album will be released March 15 on the legendary saxophonist’s 86th birthday. One of the most significant musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries, Lloyd remains at the peak of his powers in the company of a newly assembled quartet of four distinctive voices with the NEA Jazz Master joined by pianist Jason Moran, bassist Larry Grenadier, and drummer Brian Blade. The quartet will celebrate the album’s release with a special performance at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 21.
With The Sky Will Still Be There Tomorrow—Lloyd’s eleventh Blue Note album and his first new studio recording since the 2017 sessions that yielded his acclaimed releases Vanished Gardens and Tone Poem—he continues his monumental music making, an apex in American art, as a bandleader, a composer, a flutist, and a saxophonist. The album gives us first-time recordings of six new Lloyd compositions as well as reimaginations of works from his remarkable catalog. The Sky Will Still Be There Tomorrow is available for pre-order now on Blue Note Store exclusive color vinyl, black vinyl, CD, and digital download.
