Nashville blues trio SIMO sounds as if it comes to us straight from 1968. Its leader, guitarist J.D. Simo, grew up listening to the classic blues music released by Chicago's Chess Records. By the time he was 18, he was already leading bands.

SIMO's new album, Let Love Show, came out in January. Hear the trio perform songs from the record in today's session.
