Jimi Hendrix returns: The Tuesday new music rundown

A strong R&B debut, a reissued greatest hits collection from an underrated vocalist and, oh yeah —some Hendrix guy.

It’s another interesting week in new music, with the big news centered around the latest posthumous album from the legendary Jimi Hendrix. But there are other notable recordings dropping that you may want to give a listen. Not quite as soul-oriented as last week, and always eclectic.

Boz Scaggs has been writing, singing and playing great music since his tenure with the Steve Miller Band, so hearing him team up with the Memphis Horns and Willie Weeks is a delight for any fans of classic southern soul. Kate Nash’s latest may shock some of her fans — she’s definitely channeling her inner Courtney Love this time around. And Marcus Canty makes a respectable debut with an EP that owes quite a bit to Trey Songz.
