Andrew ‘Jnr Boy’ Jones – Lone Star Guitarman – JSP5807

Soul Bag – France – January 2016

 

Texas guitarman, Andrew ‘Jnr Boy’ Jones is the subject of this DVD release on the JSP label filmed by Blues Archive in 1998 at Dartmouth, England.

Jones is known for his prestigious collaborations as band leader with Freddie King, Johnny Taylor, Katie Webster and Charlie Musselwhite and here this superb singer and guitarist is on top form with his smooth and inventive guitar work particularly showcased on Make Some Changes.

His music has a flavour of Chicago West Side and Texas blues about it mixing the traditional with the new and throughout he gives a fine performance on this production.

Backed by a groovy bunch of musicians, the organist Gary Moberley stands out with his expressive keyboard work.

A bonus track of a 27 minute interview completes the portrait of this artist who occupies an important place in modern blues.
