As Charles Lloyd prepared to kick off a gig at New York's Blue Note club the night of Tuesday September 11, 2001, some murderous terrorists had some other plans for that morning a bit further south. The gig thus didn't begin until that Friday, and the wheels in Lloyd's mind kept on rolling through the aftermath, resulting in this double-CD album.

Recorded January and February 2002 at Oceanway and Cello Studios, Los Angeles.

Lift Every Voice is an album by jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd recorded in February 2002 by Lloyd with Geri Allen, John Abercrombie, Marc Johnson, Larry Grenadier and Billy Hart. The album represents Lloyd's response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Studio album by Charles Lloyd. The album received wide critical acclaim.

Compassionate, sorrowful, hopeful, Lift Every Voice is a major statement, with strong playing by all band members including pianist Geri Allen, making her ECM debut. Charles Lloyd introduces a new line-up, or line-ups, on "Lift Every Voice". The recording derives from two sessions in Los Angeles in January and February of this year. The first employed the services of pianist Geri Allen (making her ECM debut), Larry Grenadier and Billy Hart, the second Allen, John Abercrombie, Marc Johnson and Hart. For live work in varying contexts, Lloyd is now pooling permutations of these musicians)

November 3 2002, 12:00am, The Sunday Times. TOO MUCH of a good thing? Some beautiful playing is scattered throughout this double album - conceived as the saxophonist Charles Lloyd’s response to September 11 - but I wonder how many listeners will have the patience to tease it out? He may have been an enfant terrible of the 1960s, yet Lloyd’s tone grows more mellow and fragile with each year. His group had been due to start a residency at the Blue Note on the day the terrorists struck.
