Sangam is a live album by jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd recorded in Santa Barbara, California in May 2004 by Lloyd with Zakir Hussain, and Eric Harland.[1]


The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars and states "This music, while rooted in the rhythms of the world, is jazz without a doubt... what's on offer here is something truly unexpected, something wildly original and essential to jazz-improvisatory communication".[2] The All About Jazz review by Matt Cibula stated "this album captures the three grooviest motherfuckers in the world, all playing together perfectly, and it deserves some serious consideration as what ESPN would call "an instant classic"".[3]
