Saxophonist Charles Lloyd was a virtual superstar at the end of the sixties. His album Forest Flower was bought by a wide audience even though it was a mix of avant-garde jazz and Eastern influences. He explored the combination of jazz and rock, until suddenly, in the seventies, he'd had enough and withdrew from the scene. Lloyd devoted his time to meditation. A decade later he was ready to once again seek musical innovations without losing sight of his audience. He is coming to the North Sea Jazz Festival with Zakir Hussain, a virtuoso on the tabla (classical Indian drums). Hussain has played with all the legends from his own country as well as with Van Morrison, Pharoah Sanders and George Harrison. More percussion is supplied by the young Texan Eric Harland who has recorded with McCoy Tyner and Ravi Coltrane, among others.
