Jazz living legend Charles Lloyd signs with Blue Note and will release "Wild Man Dance" next April

After a string of albums on ECM (the label that also recently issued the documentary DVD "Arrows Into Infiniy"), jazz living legend Charles Lloyd just signed a new contract with Blue Note and will release "Wild Man Dance," his first album for the label in 30 years, on April 14.

The project is a live recording of a long-form suite commissioned by the Jazztopad Festival in Wroclaw, Poland. Lloyd will present the North American premiere of the "Wild Man Dance Suite" on April 18 at the Metropolitan Museum Temple of Dendur in New York, followed by two performances of the work during a four-night engagement at SFJAZZ (April 23-26) in San Francisco. Lloyd will also perform with his Quartet at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 2.
