Lloyd likened the vibe there to when his group performed in 2010 at the Herodion at the foot of the Acropolis with Greek singer Maria Farantouri.

"Each stone of the Temple embodies a part of civilization and centuries of humanity," Lloyd said in an email response to questions. "The exception here is that we are under glass in the heart of Manhattan -- this brings it into the 21st century with an aura of modernity." [680 News]

Jazz great and saxophone master Charles Lloyd played The Met's awe-inspiring Temple of Dendur on Saturday night (4/18).
