Reel Music 31 – CHARLES LLOYD: ARROWS INTO INFINITY

Charles Lloyd

Charles Lloyd became one of the most popular and influential jazz musicians of the 1960s when his album “Forest Flower” crossed over to the mainstream. But almost as quickly, he vanished from public view and for over a decade lived in the wild seclusion of Big Sur. ARROWS INTO INFINITY follows the rise, retreat, and return of the charismatic Lloyd, who in the decades since has continued his very personal spiritual quest through sound. Co-directed by his painter/filmmaker wife, this performance-rich film conveys the astonishing range of Lloyd’s career, from his Memphis roots to surprising collaborations with Keith Jarrett, The Beach Boys, Charles Bukowski, Michel Petrucciani, and many more. Among the many relating their professional experiences are fellow musicians Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, Billy Higgins, Jack DeJohnette, and Jason Moran. (114 mins.)

Director Dorothy Darr will introduce the film. With support from Portland Jazz Festival.

CHARLES LLOYD: ARROWS INTO INFINITY screens Monday, October 14 at 7pm at McMenamins Mission Theater.  The film is being presented as part of our Reel Music 31 Festival.
