Of Course, Of Course is the second album by jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd released on the Columbia label featuring performances by Lloyd with Gábor Szabó, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams.[3] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow and Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars and states "Whether on tenor or flute, Lloyd was quickly coming into his own as an original voice, and this underrated set is a minor classic".[4]
