Jeb Loy Nichols Reviewed on NPR’s Fresh Air. Read it here.

January 14, 2009

Parish Bar"Jeb Loy Nichols may sing that he’s "just a country boy," but the music surrounding that sentiment is designed to contradict him to his advantage. Nichols has made his cult by recording mixtures of country, jazz and soul music — often acoustic, much of it low-key to the point of enervating. But this new collection, which Nichols says he recorded over the past couple years — mostly at home in his spare time between other projects — is his most inviting album yet. It seems both offhand and sincerely curious in its musical explorations."says Ken Tucker about Job Loy Nichols’ Parish Bar on today’s Fresh Air on NPR.

The review is airing on Fresh Air today at 1pm EST. It can be read here and will be on the NPR site at 3pm today if you’d prefer to listen in.

Jeb Loy Nichols’ "Parish Bar" to be reviewed on NPR’s "Fresh Air" next week

January 08, 2009
Parish BarRock Critic Ken Tucker will be reviewing Jeb Loy NicholsParish Bar in a segment of NPR’s "Fresh Air" set to air on the album’s release date, Tuesday, January 13th.

"Fresh Air" with Terry Gross, the Peabody Award-winning weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, is one of public radio’s most popular programs. Each week, nearly 4.5 million people listen to the show’s intimate conversations broadcast on more than 450 National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country, as well as in Europe on the World Radio Network.

Though "Fresh Air" has been categorized as a "talk show," it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits "Fresh Air" with "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights." And a variety of top publications count Gross among the country’s leading interviewers. The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators.

"Fresh Air" is produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and broadcast nationally by NPR.
