Sunrise & Sunset ... the BEST

"When I searched for this album I wasn't sure I could even find it but I did and it is as great as I hoped for. It brings back many memories of those that I enjoyed listening to this Charles Lloyd 'classic' with .... I even got to hear it live when Keith Jarrett was still with the group ... at UCLA I believe. This piece has the most incredible range of emotional response I have ever experienced ... and I not only relived it as a musical experience but also with fond memories of those I enjoyed it with, some of whom have passed on. The entire album is great but cannot be compared with the Original 'Forest Flower Live in Monterey'. This is truely a classic piece of musical genius and should be enjoyed by a wider audience to receive it's just due."

"You know, I have been listening to a lot of 1965-67 Coltrane lately, and as essential as this is to my system, I need a break.

And maybe that was part of the idea Charles Lloyd had when he put out Forest Flower in 1967. Coltrane, Shepp, Taylor, The Black Panthers, protest vs. revolution. All this had taken over jazz that year. So Charles Lloyd comes along, and Forest Flower says--"This is all supposed to be fun. Chill for a second. We'll make the demonstration tomorrow. Let's play some tunes. RELAX!"

Not that these "tunes" leave subtance lacking. Lloyds sense of harmony and melody is increadible. Listening to is chord structres, I feel as if a Beatles or Brian Wilson has been channeled into a jazz man. His chords are so tuneful, this music is just a joy to listen to. Fresh and clean now as it was the day it was born.

I don't have to tell you about the skill of Keith Jarret or Jack Dejonette--there is a reason Miles inducted them--and proof is right here.

There was a lot of great jazz like this during this era, and unfortunately, it gets hidden in the shadow of giants like Coltrane, Miles, and Archie Shepp. Listen to them always, but dig on this sometimes, too.

My favorite C. LLoyd album.

"Excellent tunes for sure. I own the original record album purchased in the sixties, along with most of Charles LLoyd's others as well. (Forest Flower from the Monterey Jazz Festival is my favorite)

This music is timeless. The free/cheaper shipping is ultra slow, but you'll forget all about that when you pop this CD in the player! :)"
