JON LLOYD QUARTET is my touring group in 2024/ 2025.
This quartet plays European contemporary jazz.
My compositions are interpreted beautifully by pianist John Law, bassist Nick Pini and drummer Alex Goodyear. I play tenor and soprano saxophone.
Our album "Earth Songs" is now available on the fabulous UK jazz label Ubuntu and we are busy planning concert opportunities throughout the UK and Europe…
Two singles from the album are available for streaming. Please click here…
Jazzwise have reviewed Earth Songs in the March 2024 issue:
"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."
Jon Turney, London Jazz News, 2023

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