I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Stacy Jones - Love Is Everywhere - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Love Is Everywhere, from Stacy Jones and it's a cool mix of blues, folk, country and pop. Opening with Mojo Potion #61 & 49, a cool rocker with just a touch of country western, Stacy Jones on lead vocal, harmonica and guitar leads the way backed by Jeff Menteer on guitar, Rick Bowen on drums and Tom Jones on bass. Seaan Denton steps up on second lead guitar and Angelo Ortiz adds cool rhythm on washboard for a tight opener. Wait For Heaven has a definite southern rock/Toy and Tommy Caldwell feel. One of my favorite tracks, Can't Find Love, is a strong alt rock track sounding like a mix of Frank Black and the Catholics and Fiona Apple. A great melody with a cool beat and guitar/strong vocal combination. A real nice instrumental, Stomp Jump Boogie features the infamous Lee Oskar joining on harmonica. Super twin harps and a great walking bass line makes for a terrific track. One of the strongest melodies on the release is Can't You Be Mine with hints of Paul McCartney. With a bluesier feel and soulful guitar soloing, another cool number.  With Fiona Apple like style and Curtis Mayfield undertones, title track, Love Is Everywhere, shows yet another side of Jones. On jump track, One Stop Light, Mike Marinig really blows out the sax and sets the road to a cool guitar solo by Jones. Wrapping the release is, I'll Be On My Way, a rambling blues track along the lines of Are You Ready For The Country. With snappy drums by Bowen, cool resonator and harp work by Jones and a solid bass line by Tom Jones, this is a solid closer for a solid release.
