Celebrating our 11th Anniversary with KEB' MO'

The Reflection is the first new studio album by Keb Mo since Suitcase in 2006.

In that time, he started a new family; moved from Los Angeles to Nashville; built a state–of–the–art home studio, and founded his own label, Yolabelle International, distributed by Ryko and the Warner Music Group.

Celebrating our 11th Anniversary with BATTLEFIELD BAND

Under their banner “Forward with Scotland’s Past”, Battlefield Band have been a bedrock of talent for over four decades, and continue to lead the way for Scotland with their inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song. Scotland’s great flagship band are the musicians that others measure themselves against, and their new album “Line-up” finds them fresh and invigorated, illustrating once again that they are among the most relevant contemporary composers and interpreters of Celtic music today.

Wide open: That’s the phrase John Medeski uses to describe his bandmates’ musical sensibilities, the attitude he seeks in himself, and the spirit of musical adventure that Medeski Martin & Wood have pursued for two decades. The trio’s amalgam of jazz, funk, “avant-noise” and a million other musical currents and impulses is nearly impossible to classify, which is just how they like it.
