Manhattan Stories from 2xHD and Resonance Records captures the always-extraordinary saxophonist and flutist Charles Lloyd in 1965. Leading a remarkable and previously unreleased quartet featuring three jazz giants: guitarist Gábor Szabó, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Pete La Roca.

In 1965, when these tracks were recorded at the now-defunct venues Judson Hall, Lloyd was fresh from his stint with drummer and bandleader Chico Hamilton, where he’d first crossed paths with Szabó. Lloyd already had two albums to his name. Within a year he would form his groundbreaking quartet with Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee, and Jack DeJohnette.
