Jeb Loy Nichols: Lovers Knot
Buy! - (Capitol)
Formerly leader of the extremely eclectic and militantly political roots band The Fellow Travelers, this American-born, London-based artist is a true musical original. His debut solo album draws from a variety of sources including blues, R&B, country, jazz and reggae to create a hard-to-classify sound that's steeped in classic Southern soul. He's backed by an amazing diversity of stellar artists like Doug Wimbish, John Medeski, Jazz Passengers Curtis Fowlkes and Roy Nathanson, the Holmes Brothers and Joe Higgs. Still, Nichols and his sweetly soulful songs are the deserved focus here, and this rich, subtle gem is one of the year's best albums. 8/15/1997 - Don Yates
