Killin’ It

I wish to thank Joe Cole for a wonderful job putting Charles Lloyd in front of many people. Many years ago, Mr. Lloyd was a frequent client of my auto body repair shop in Santa Monica where he would sit in my office and meditate while waiting for his car. He was always charming and inspirational. A very grounded individual whom I enjoyed chatting with on a regular basis. He made sure that I got some great long-play records on the Blue Thumb label, which I would give anything to have with me today.

At any rate, even Mr. Lloyd would not remember me, but he made an impact on me that I will remember for a long time.
