Jeb Loy Nichols may be a new name to many of you, but he has been around a little while , his debut album ‘Country Hustle’ is an intriquing mixture of soul and country/bluegrass. it is a lovely album, also check his limited edition 10″ mini album ‘Ya Smell Me’ which we still have a few copies of. The Jazzman series ‘Spiritual Jazz’ reaches its seventh volume with ‘Islam’ a collection of great tracks that take you to a higher level inspired by their religion. Kaidi Tatham has a strong Ep ‘Changing Times’.
