JW-Jones - Reviews


"Jones's recent disc "Defibrillatin" dishes up some of the most mature music I've heard from a young band in a long, long time--one listen to this collection of 10 originals had me not only nodding my head in agreement but tapping my toes and swaying to some very meaty progressions."

"West Coast Jump Blues at it's very best! The JW-Jones Blues Band are like the little brothers of the Mighty Flyers, only fresher, dirtier and full of more energy. This Canadian band's ten original compositions are an absoute must for all Blues fans!"

- Online Blues Magazine, Germany

"...you wonder where JW has been reincarnated from. He possesses an understanding and feel way beyond his years."

- Mr. Blues Online Heaven, Australia

"..jumpin' 12-bar blues, slow blues, be-bop...it's all here. No screaming special effects, no grandstanding, just the real deal (not to mention some VERY fine songwriting)."

- Otis Grand
