Lloyd McNeill

Soul Jazz Records’ run of Lloyd McNeill reissues bears more fruit with a remastered edition of 1980’s Elegia. A private-press LP that has been out of print for close to four decades, Elegia is another elegant set of spiritual jazz from the underrated McNeill. Some tracks show off Brazilian and Latin influences, while album centrepiece ‘Elegiac Suite For Elizabeth’ is a gorgeous blend of Claude Debussy, John Coltrane and Nina Simone.

Lloyd McNeill

Soul Jazz Records reissue another LP from the notable Lloyd McNeill. After putting out new editions of Asha, Tanner Suite and Washington Suite the label now dusts off 1976’s private press album Treasures. This is ebullient, flowing music that incorporates elements of various jazzes - spiritual, Latin and soul being the most prominent. McNeill’s glorious flute playing ties the thing together. Treasures is one to file next to those recent Horace Tapscott reissue that we got so excited about a few weeks back.
