The Third Installment in Lloyd's Trio of Trios Project on 180g Vinyl LP!

Jazzwise The 20 Best Jazz Albums of 2022 - Rated 18/20!

Saxophonist and composer Charles Lloyd has been a free spirit, master musician, and visionary. At 84, he remains at the height of his powers and as prolific as ever. As a sound seeker, Lloyd has perhaps found no greater manifestation than on his Trio of Trios project, which encompasses three albums in different trio settings. The third, Trios: Sacred Thread, features guitarist Julian Lage and percussionist Zakir Hussain. 180-gram LP.

Sacred Thread represents the Trio series' most radical departure from the freeboppish or bluesily grooving soundscapes of its predecessors Chapel, and Ocean – a more open global-musical trip, as well as an homage to Lloyd's decades-long devotion to the spirituality of the East.
-John Fordham, Jazzwise, The 20 Best Jazz Albums of 2022
Trios: Sacred Thread is the fitting sendoff volume for the project. Its tunes are wrought with nearly symbiotic aesthetic interplay, spiritual connection, intimacy, and even tenderness.
-Thom Jurek,, 4/5 stars (The AllMusic 2022 Year in Review - Favorite Jazz Albums)
