Charles Lloyd & The Marvels
Blue Note, 2021

April 27, 2021

Tone Poem is the title of Charles Lloyd’s latest album released by Blue Note.

Lloyd’s third album released with The Marvels after 2016’s I Love To See You and 2018’s Vanished Gardens, Tone Poem is again strongly characterized by the atypical line-up that features the leader on sax, Bill Frisell on guitar, Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Reuben Rogers on double bass and Eric Harland on drums.



The album presents two songs by Ornette Coleman, “Peace” revisited in a country key and “Ramblin” with the rock’n’roll guitar in the foreground. The delicate “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen is a particularly beautiful ballad in which Frisell brilliantly supports the leader. “Ay Amor” is a harrowing composition by Bola de Nieve and the famous “Monk’s Mood” by Thelonius Monk is revised here revised with a particularly sober contemporary approach.

The collection is completed with “Lady Gabor” and “Prayer”, which were part of the repertoire of Chico Hamilton’s quintet in the 60s. Lloyd was a member of this ensemble. The title-track was originally recorded for the film “One Night with Blue Note” in 1985 and the new blues “Dismall Swamp ”, has a very rhythmic approach.

Tone Poem maintains the original and fascinating timbre approach of Charles Lloyd & The Marvels, a true distinctive element of the project and the link between the various tracks of the record.
