Jon Lloyd is probably best known for his work with his own quartet, which he has led since the early 1990’s. The quartet has released 3 c.d.’s, toured the U.K. and appeared at festivals both here and on the Continent. Here, Jon has written a brand new suite of compositions and has chosen to use a larger ensemble, featuring a couple of members of the fertile Berlin new music scene, Aleks Kolkowski on violin and Marc Boukouya on trombone. The writing bares all the typical Jon Lloyd hall marks - intelligence, full throttle intensity, passion and a distinct sense of purpose. A welcome addition to Lloyd’s expanding discography.
