Dreams Fulfilled / Nimbus Sextet

Nimbus Sextet - Dreams Fulfilled

Acid Jazz

Led by pianist Joe Nichols, the Glasgow based jazz band Nimbus Sextet unload an array of engaging soul jazz recordings. The core of the band, Nichols, drummer Alex Palmer and bassist Mischa Stevens came together while attending Edinbough University. By 2018 the band evolved into a sextet, which brings us to their debut"Dreams Fulfilled". They bust out of the gate with the searing groove of "Trap Door", riped with blazing horns and melodic keys. Nichols along with Saxophonist Martin Fell sereanades us with warm mellow melodies on "Klara". Guest guitarist Luca Pisanu adds adventurous rhythms to the contemporary piece "Seance". An impressive debut for this talented group that will garner plenty of attention.
