Few days before his 75th birthday next month, the saxophonist    release on March 4 a duet album with pianist Jason Moran, which is part of his quartet since 2008.  

"Hagar's Song", will pay tribute to some big names in American popular music, from Gershwin to Bob Dylan, not to mention a long-awaited revival of "God Only Knows", one of the most famous songs of the Beach Boys ...

Lloyd has an utterly personal sound that he exploits beautifully on ballads and lyrical, near-abstract pieces. --The New Yorker

The bottom line is that he is now producing, both live and on recordings, some of the finest playing of his career. --Los Angeles Times
