Once an icon of 1960s jazz, Charles Lloyd (be­low) re­mains a high-profile name in the busi­ness, and he has no trou­ble at­tract­ing the best play­ers for his bands. For his third visit in as many years he brings a group of heavy hit­ters in the per­sons of pi­anist Ja­son Mo­ran, one of the young li­ons on the US jazz scene; a fine bassist, Ruben Rodgers; and a mar­vel­lous drum­mer in Eric Har­land. Lloyd’s visit is part of the im­pres­sive jazz se­ries lined up by Note Pro­duc­tions, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the He­lix, which also spot­lights some of the best tal­ent on the lo­cal stage. This time it’s the turn of pi­anist Greg Fel­ton’s quar­tet, with sax­o­phon­ist Michael Buck­ley, bassist Cor­mac O’Brien and the bril­liant (and al­most ubiq­ui­tous) drum­mer, Seán Car­pio. They’re all part of a dou­ble bill at the He­lix tonight.
