Micahel Lington has just released his follow up to 2014’s “Soul Appeal” with an album called “Second Nature” in the UK. A jazz artist who has great respect for his roots, this is an amazing collection of songs that transports you to familiar days past. These soulful sounds from a man who plays what he feels were just begging to be added to the Ice Stream featured album listings.
