Geeta is the fifteenth studio album by jazz saxophonist and flutist Charles Lloyd. It was released by A&M Records as album SP 3046.[4]

Reception[edit]

Billboard's 1973 review commented that "The fading Indian musical influence blending cogently with free flowing modern jazz is the end result here", and suggested that the second side was the more commercial.[4]
