This week’s shift features some top tier new release albums, including Moreland & Arbuckle, Too Slim & the Taildraggers, and Paul Reddick. The album unintentionally leans toward harmonica Blues for a large portion of the program, which speaks to the trend we’re seeing in the rise of talented harp players.
