Jon Lloyd

I am a UK based saxophonist and composer...

JON LLOYD QUARTET is my touring group in 2023/2024.

This quartet presents my compositions of European contemporary jazz, interpreted beautifully by pianist John Law, bassist Nick Pini and drummer Alex Goodyear.

We are excited to be releasing our 2023 recording "Earth Songs" on the fabulous UK jazz label Ubuntu in February 2024, and in the meantime are busy planning concert opportunities throughout the UK and Europe...

Please contact me directly for all bookings and further information.


Please take a minute to read some things people have said about my work:

 “His tunes are steeped in the ECM aesthetic, and he and long-time collaborator John Law on piano make it sound like the only music you ever want to hear.”

A saxophone delivery as persuasive as a speaking voice. Lloyd should be seen and heard more often”

— Brian Morton, Penguin Guide to Jazz

Ambitious and virtuosic... Jon Lloyd is one of the most striking writers at the sharp end of British jazz and improvisation”
