Lloyd McNeill - Asha and now Washington Suite released on CD !

41 posts in this topic

And 'Elegia' comes out next month.  Now we just need 'Tori', hoping maybe they'll do that one in September.  'Treasures' is a wonderful album, especially the awesome "Griot", where Cecil McBee is amazing.

I'll be in for that - even though I have the LP.

Damn, that's nice!!  The only Lloyd McNeill I have is Washington Suite (on CD), but I suppose I really ought to consider getting some more then.

Start with 'Asha' and then 'Treasures'.  That will give you the prime work.  And hope for 'Tori'.

I do! That's the only McNeill album I still don't have, not Elegia, as I supposed.

Turns out I have a download of Tori on some hard drive. I'll get a a copy of a future CD reissue, anyway.

This is a 1997 CD of improvised duets with pianist Richard Kimball. They never get atonal, stay free of clichés and superficial free music patterns, still make an impression of totally free improvisation. Recommended. But hard to find .....

I picked it up very recently, have not listened yet.  Not expensive or hard to find in USA.  $9.99 on Amazon Prime.  Looks like Elegia release has been postponed to September 20.  And I do hope Tori makes it to CD in these reissues.

Just ordered a copy. Thanks for highlighting it. I'm not sure how I missed it's existence earlier, very careless of me.

I got the only copy of the CD with Kimball on discogs for about the same prize, didn't look on amazon.com. On amazon.de it was too expensive.

Treasures has arrived and I'm hoping to listen to it this weekend.  Will definitely be getting the new reissue of Elegia as well.

Just discovered McNeill, purchased Treasures, and have Washington Suite on the way. Really enjoying the former, especially Cecil McBee's playing. Asha will likely be next.

Asha is the pick of the litter, although all three are outstanding.  He also has had outstanding careers as a painter and photographer and professor.

Listening to it right now ... for THE FIRST TIME!!! Man, what fine music. I'll be spinning this for a while.

Weird that I discovered McNeill before discovering this thread, but it all worked out in the end. Somewhat mystifying that such a talent could be so deep under the radar.

Agreed, though he was/is a true renaissance man, with many talents (art - he studied with Picasso, photography, education)
