GUITAR VIRTUOSO, SEAMLESSLY MOVES FROM ROCKABILLY TO JAZZ TO TWANG AND BACK AGAIN
Jinx Jones, a guitar virtuoso, seamlessly moves from rockabilly to jazz to twang and back again, sometimes in the same song! He dazzles…while launching melodic lines consisting of standards by Montgomery, Kessel, Lionel Hampton and Benny Goodman. “The one thing that remains consistent throughout Jones’ multi-stylistic journey is the grace and finesse of his virtuoso playing.” (SF Chronicle)
