The album title - Sangam - is from India. So is one of the marvellously ‘unlikely’ trio who made it, ‘live’, one night in 2004 – a night so wonderful that by its end they knew their ‘one off’ meeting would become an ongoing alliance. Sangam means a confluence or a coming together, in various senses, sacred & secular.

All Things Considered, June 25, 2006 ·
Sangam (SAHN-gahm) is a Hindi word that means confluence. It represents a meeting of rivers and a melding of waters.

The Sangam trio is a group that melds musical traditions. Jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd, Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain and the dynamic young drummer Eric Harland form the tributaries of this new sound.

Jam bands, eat your hearts out!

The set list is improvised. Charles Lloyd and two master percussionists. Playing live. Improvising all the way. Jam bands, eat your hearts out. This is jazz, high-flying, soul-satisfying, musically virtuosic jazz, played the way it was meant to be, wild, wooly, and totally free. Of the 40 or so albums that Charles Lloyd has recorded in his half-century career, this one makes the top ten easy, maybe even the top five.
