CHARLES LLOYD QUARTET WITH SPECIAL GUEST MARIA FARANTOURI AT BARBICAN
by Geoffrey Winston
LONDON JAZZ NEWS
UK, 30  April 2013

London Jazz News 30.04

 

Cue Maria Farantouri, whom Lloyd declared "has been my teacher for the last decade or so!" Having played a series of concerts together, they had established a natural blend and balance as her sculpted, tonally modulated voice became the fifth instrument in a unique rapport between Greek rebetiko and contemporary jazz idioms. The stringed lyra of Socratis Sinopoulos was the raw, ancient sixth voice which underscored the history, emotion and landscape evoked by Farantouri, and, unexpectedly, was invested with the spirit of Jerry Goodman's violin from the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
