Featuring Bill Frisell, Reuben Rogers, Eric Harland and Greg Leisz

NEA Jazz Master Charles Lloyd travels to the Library with his great band of troubadours and companions, The Marvels, plus an artist he dubs “a poet…an authentic American voice:” singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams. You hear the elation of terrific musicians in the groove of a longtime partnership, performing “music that evokes an uncommon state of grace” (NPR). Their new album Vanished Gardens displays an easy mastery of styles and shows that “the many currents of American music all flow into a single stream” (Rolling Stone).

Violinist Chelsey Green appears as guest artist, performing the world premiere of Charles Lloyd's new Library of Congress commission with the composer at the piano.
