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!

Blue Rock Records artist: Dennis Jones Band - WE3 Live - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, WE3 Live from the Dennis Jones Band and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with funky blues track, Blue Over You, Dennis Jones on lead vocal and guitar is backed by Sam Correa on bass and Raymond Johnson on drums. Tight and funky with some really tasty bass work and Jones' slashing guitar style, this is a solid opener. Hot stepper, Hot Sauce, has a really snappy drum line with a driving bass line giving Jones the opportunity to play some country styled blues riffs. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Don't Worry About Me with an aggressive bass line and flowing blues guitar soloing by Jones giving the track real bite. Boogie track, Super Deluxe has a real nice flow with components of Texas blues and jazz mixed equally giving it a foot stomping, guitar gripping edge. Very nice. Funky blues rocker, Enjoy The Ride, has a great bottom giving Jones a great platform for his assertive rhythm playing and compelling soloing. Very cool. Wild card track, Kill The Pain shows a lot of Jimi influence with vocal and guitar inflection over a droning bass line. Some of Jones' most choice guitar riffs come out on this track making it another of my favorites. You can feel the tension building as this live show goes on with Big Black Cat and it's powerful drive. Really digging into his bag of tricks over tom tom heavy drum work, Jones is lighting it up on Devil's Nightmare. Shuffle track, I'm Good has great flow with a tight rhythm, solid vocals and crisp guitar riffs. Wrapping the release is Albert King's Born Under A Bad Sign, with Jones pulling out the stops. His Hendrix influence is heavy but not dominant and he really shines. This is a super closer for a solid blues rocker.
