Charles Lloyd and Americana singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams make an odd couple: the former celebrated for his upbeat tenor sax and lyrical flute playing, the latter for her downcast songwriting and racked vocals. The pair share southern roots,however, while two of Lloyd’s eclectic combo – mercurial guitarist Bill Frisell and pedal steel player Greg Leisz – have previously worked with Williams. Too bad Williams doesn’t sing on the plaintive Ballad of the Sad Young Men. Otherwise, this unexpected collaboration doesn’t miss a trick.
