Limehouse Blues

...this is a really strong recording, full of energy, fun, and great banjo playing from Nickerson. He is supported by Reeves on guitar, along with mandolin, trumpet, bass, and occasionally drum, violin and saxophone. Banjo Newsletter

Most interesting is the interwoven solos on banjo and trumpet and Justin and Ross perform magic on their instruments. Bluegrass Breakdown Magazine Review

Review on Swing Grass
Molly Reeves has released “Swing Grass, featuring Ross Nickerson,” a collection of jazz standards like Limehouse Blues, Lady Be Good, Over the Waves (done like a New Orleans second line), and more. Reeves is a young jazz singer who obviously loves her Dixieland music; she says it was her father’s idea to do a jazz-bluegrass fusion project. And this is a really strong recording, full of energy, fun, and great banjo playing from Nickerson. He is supported by Reeves on guitar, along with mandolin, trumpet, bass, and occasionally drum, violin and saxophone. Reeves is a fetchingly sultry singer (she sounds a bit like Nora Jones), and Ross’s banjo is a thrilling addition to songs like Spontaneous Dislocation Blues, Dark Eyes, The 154 (a version of when the Saints …).
