Kboo Presents: Charles Lloyd: Arrows Into Infinity says
Thursday, April 9, 7:00 pm. Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street. Admission: suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds.

Charles Lloyd was one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 1960s. His music crossed traditional boundaries and explored new territories. Catapulted into worldwide fame in his 20s, by his early 30s, he abandoned his life of touring and recording and went into seclusion in Big Sur, CA. Circumstance brought him back to a public life in the late 1980s. 'Arrows Into Infinity' is a journey in sound through the unusual life and career of this jazz legend. Lloyd's own voice, and those who worked with him over the last five decades help us discover and better understand this enigmatic man and his spiritual pursuit through music. This film is a collaborative work between Lloyd's wife Dorothy Darr; a painter, and videographer/filmmaker, Jeffery Morse.

Beautiful film

It's hard to be objective because I've loved the music of Charles Lloyd since I discovered his first "comeback" CD in the 80s. The film is a beautiful portrait of Lloyd's life spent dedicated to music as a means to a spiritual life. It is generous in spirit and balances commentary from Lloyd and his many fantastic friends and collaborators with a bunch of footage and music from his whole career.

The musical choices are fantastic and the level of playing is astonishing. Lloyd makes music that is deeply spiritual, by turns powerful and edgy, and gentle and lyrical. His bandmates in every era have been among the best living musicians, committed to making the most alive and beautiful music possible. This film celebrates the journey that has been Lloyd's life and succeeds brilliantly.

...One thing that is clear by the end of the movie is that the music Lloyd is making now at age 75 is as alive and vital as ever. His current collaborators, Zakir Hussain, Eric Harland, Rueben Rogers and Jason Moran are among the best jazz (and world) musicians of our time and they're called on to bring everything they have every time they play with Charles.

I loved it wholeheartedly.
