Canto is an album by jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd recorded in December 1996 by Lloyd with Bobo Stenson, Anders Jormin and Billy Hart.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Canto is the song of a master who employs all of his tools in the creation of a work of art".[2] The All About Jazz review by Alex Henderson stated "Lloyd, like Trane, has always been very spiritual, and there's no way getting around the fact that spirituality is a crucial part of Canto. The rewarding post-bop session has a meditative quality, and Lloyd's modal improvisations draw heavily on Middle Eastern and Asian spiritual music... [a] strong addition to Lloyd's catalogue".[3]
