Chicago Blues veteran

"Jones again demonstrates his masterful sense of timing and authority." - Living Blues Magazine

As a member of the Mannish Boys and on his own Delta Groove CD, Jones is for the first time in his career singing nothing but what he calls “straight-up blues.” And with the enthusiastic reception he’s been getting from concert and blues festival audiences and from radio programmers and record reviewers, it appears that Jones, at age 69, is finally finding the wide acclaim that for so long had largely eluded him.

“In the blues,” he observed, “you can stand forever. Long as you can sing it, it’ll pay you.”
