Charles Lloyd & The Marvels with special guest Lucinda Williams

December 6, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Charles Lloyd & The Marvels
with special guest Lucinda Williams
featuring Greg Leisz, Reuben Rogers, and Eric Harland

Iconoclast saxophonist and NEA Jazz Master Charles Lloyd celebrates his 80th year with a new project that finds his fiery revolutionary spirit intact. In response to the presidential inauguration of 2017, Lloyd and his band The Marvels joined with folk-rock pioneer Lucinda Williams to release a rendition of Bob Dylan’s protest song “Masters of War.” The success of that single has led to a new collaboration and Blue Note album—to be released in June 2018—that adds Williams’ distinctive voice to an all-star lineup that already includes Reuben Rogers on bass, Eric Harland on drums, and Greg Leisz on pedal steel. “The group speaks directly to the current national predicament. While riding on a groove of hope and joy, this music dares to challenge the darker side of authority” (Santa Barbara Independent).
