"Billy Jones brings back the Thrill that once belonged to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush. ...A refreshing blast of the really great sound of Healing Blues, Jazz, Funk Music.
Loaded with Rich Blues Tradition B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Even Johnny Winter Flavors.
Folks you must check out Billy Jones Bluez."
"Billy Jones proves to be an excellent bluesman in this superb album, which epitimizes his extrodinary guitar playing, borrowing from the likes of such greats as Hendrix, Muddy Waters, and BB King. I'd recommend this to any avid blues listener and I look forward to hearing more from the reclusive Billy Jones."
