KEN NICOL – Tidings (MVS Sound Limited MVS CD002)

I suppose it’s probably a little early/late for this review but anyone who knows me knows I can’t get enough of Ken Nicol’s accomplishments as a guitarist…another thing is my enjoyment of nostalgia particularly at Christmas time. Well here’s a recording that hits the mark on both counts. Coupled with his consummate instrumental skills Ken has managed to encompass practically every favourite Christmas song and carol on one album in an instrumental tour de force. Included on this recording are the traditional offerings “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, “We Three Kings”, “Good King Wenceslas” and even a sprinkling of more ‘modern’ numbers “Winter Wonderland” and “White Christmas” not forgetting his own – ‘in the idiom’ title track. If that doesn’t wet your appetite then I don’t know what will. A cracking album that can be played at anytime of the year to impress your friends!
