L. A. Jones & The Blues Messengers 2002 Birthday Suit

His fiery guitar sizzles through this set of originals, plus two classic tunes. It's the traditional spirit of The Blues Messengers that makes their latest album stand out. "How Blue Can You Get" oozes that feeling you want when you put on the blues. With horns and rhythm L.A. Jones sings the tale of woe convincingly and drives the message home with his blazing axe. "Got My Ax to Grind" turns up the heat with a rock 'n' roll attitude, while several numbers loll in deep-fried Mississippi Delta heaven. When Jones interprets a lyric, it's with powerful punctuation from his guitar.

With Magic Dave Therault filling in on harp, upright bassist Rick Reed, pianist Benny Yee and drummer Hank Deluxe providing a solid foundation, and the talented Martin brothers, Andy, Scott and Stan adding horn arrangements, Jones has the cast he needs for lighting it up. His guitar reveals an expressive side on "Birthday Suit," an original whose lyrics contain remarkable double-entendre sidebars. The combination of Jones' fresh story, his vocal-like guitar phrasing, and Yee's moody organ solo makes this title track memorable. It's the kind of mood you carry around with you all day long. (Jim Santella, Southland Blues, May 2002)

It is extremely rewarding when a CD arrives from parts unknown and you realize, upon listening to it, that you have unearthed a real treasure. Spirit" is Eastick's much anticipated sequel to his very fine 1995 release "The Southern Line". It contains 12 original tracks either written or co-written by Eastick, including 5 very fine instrumentals. Every selection on this CD is a first class offering and quite frankly it has been a long time since I have heard a recording from anyone that is this consistently good from start to finish. Eastick's guitar is clean, crisp, and commanding throughout the entire set, and the studio sound is excellent as well. (http://dwmmusic.com/)

United States

From one left-handed guitarist to another, this tribute album was recorded in Italy by L.A. Jones with a band of Italian blues musicians. Ever since meeting Albert King backstage in 1985, Jones had adopted the veteran's unusual guitar tuning with a right-handed guitar held upside down. What's important, however, is the sound that he gets out of his instrument. Jones breathes the same blues as Albert King, convincingly with an authentic band backing up his vibrant guitar strokes. Bass, drums, piano, organ and horns give him an incredibly vibrant feel as the leader interprets six of King's songs as well as several of his own.

Swing numbers, such as "Let's Have a Natural Ball" and "I've Made Nights by Myself," provide the kind of audience-pleasure that King brought to his audiences for over 40 years. The more dramatic numbers on the program, such as "I'll Play the Blues For You," "Flood-in' in California" and "Crosscut Saw," bring more authenticity with clearer memories of the veteran bluesman who passed away not too long after his last appearance in the Southland. Like King, Jones concentrates on tone and intensity more than flash. Those guitar strings bend appropriately in giving meaning to each lyric.

Jones adds "The Very Thought of You" to the program with a sincere appreciation for the memories that King left us. It's a natural gesture that goes a long way in explaining our appreciation for the departed bluesman. As he closes the session with his own "Long Distance Love," played nice and slow with plenty of guitar expression, Jones ensures that we're all able to join in on this fitting tribute.

United States

Recorded in Zoppe di San Vendemiano, Italy, L.A. Jones stretches his guitar with the support of bassist Gigi Todesca and drummer Vincenzo Barattin. It's the kind of blues guitar stretchin' out that everyone loves. Jones goes on and on, with the audience urging him forward. Riffing through the stratosphere, he unleashes a storm of electric guitar pyrotechnics; yet, his acrobatic gestures remain tasteful. Jones couples his solo tirades with down home country blues and several vocal interpretations.

Part of the program comes from a century of tradition, while several originals carry the torch forward. Jones' vocal selections pale in comparison to his blazing guitar, but the audience seems to love the stories, nevertheless. The scene has been captured well, leaving a balance of club atmosphere and band jive for the listener to soak up. Jones also mesmerizes with his easy-to-love guitar swing. Drummer and bassist color each tune, as the leader keeps the burners on high. Readers will find this session appealing for the leader's passionate guitar work. (Barking Blues Music)
