Mellow Monday: Charles Lloyd & The Marvels "Defiant"

This rare combination of mellow tenor sax and delicious, ethereal pedal steel melted me right away. I’ve never heard anything like this before. Legendary Charles Lloyd lays down a beautiful and seductive sax over the pastoral pedal steel from Greg Leisz and intertwined guitar from Bill Frisell. This exquisite instrumental takes its sweet time and draws you in – a wonderful way to slide into a Mellow Monday. Enjoy.
