Six Stars

The day I heard "Angel" on my car radio, I went home and purchased "Vanished Gardens" on iTunes. I will always be grateful to Charles Lloyd and the Marvels joining Lucinda Williams for touching my music life so deeply. This album is a "VVS Diamond"gem in anyone's music library. When I got into my car the next day, I kissed the radio for giving me a kick in the pants to some of the best music Ive heard in years. This combination of styles and talent should have a sixth star rating. Jimi Hendrex is smiling down on Lucinda and on one of the best saxophonists soulful interpretations to lyrics out there. Charles Llyod and the Marvels transform music through their soul's to a world that needs to hear how beautiful music is really made. "Vanished Gardens" marriage of Luncinda Williams is the sweet angel of this album. Charles Lloyd and the Marvels, fly on back to the recofrding studio and keep giving us your heart, soul and the best music talent in years.

Saw the group in concert last year in LA during the time this record was being recorded. An amazing band. Charles at the top of his game has found the perfect foil in Bill Frisell. Featuring Greg Leisz. Reuben Rogers. Eric Harland. And the incredible voice of Lucinda Williams. As good as it gets. Indispensable.

What a gem

What an artistic career for Charles Lloyd. Near 80 years old, and still a master of all things musical. The backing is well named - indeed marvelous. And Lucinda? - who'd a thunk? Brilliant.
