New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Charles Lloyd & The Marvels have released the new single "Defiant," the spellbinding opening incantation of Lloyd's forthcoming album Vanished Gardens, which is a fascinating collaboration between the NEA Jazz Master saxophonist and the acclaimed GRAMMY-winning singer and songwriter Lucinda Williams, who appears on half of the album's 10 songs. "Defiant" follows the release of "We've Come Too Far To Turn Around" featuring Williams, which Stereogum called "an exciting hybrid of jazz, blues, and country rock." The Marvels are Bill Frisell on guitar, Greg Leisz on pedal steel guitar and dobro, Reuben Rogers on bass, and Eric Harland on drums.

"We know each other better now and therefore we can travel more freely down certain paths," says Lloyd, reflecting upon how The Marvels have evolved since their 2016 debut I Long To See You, which NPR described as "music that evokes an uncommon state of grace." That album featured guest vocals from both Willie Nelson and Norah Jones, but the collaborative nature the band has nurtured with Williams has led them to even greater heights of expression. "I think on the new recording we were able to let go and plunge deeply into the sound," Lloyd says.

Williams is featured on five tracks on Vanished Gardens, including expansive new versions of her well-known songs "Dust," "Ventura" and "Unsuffer Me," as well as a full-hearted interpretation of Jimi Hendrix's "Angel" that closes the album. Alternating with the vocal tracks are five sublime instrumental offerings including three new Lloyd originals and versions of Thelonious Monk's "Monk's Mood" and the Roberta Flack popularized song "Ballad of The Sad Young Men."

Lloyd celebrated his 80th birthday in March, and is marking the milestone throughout 2018 with special concerts, residencies, festival performances including the Newport Jazz Festival where Lloyd will be the Artist In Residence performing three sets with different bands. Lloyd and Williams will appear together this weekend at the Playboy Jazz Festival (June 10), as well as upcoming performances at Newport Jazz Festival (August 5), Monterey Jazz Festival (September 23), Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater (December 14-15), and more.
