Billy Jones & Delta Blues Outlaws

Billy Jones & Delta Blues Outlaws

http://www.facebook.com/billy.j.bluez


“ Billy Jones’ ‘Funky Blues & Southern Soul - Volume 1' is, what the title already suggests, a mix of fine Southern Soul and great blues, where Billy's sometimes scorching guitar goes far beyond the qualitative average… “ - www.rootstime.be

Taking Blues to New Places with R&B, Southern Soul, and Urban Style :
"One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues and Soul albums in recent memory.
Billy Jones is a totally charismatic veteran who shows all the signs of becoming as big or bigger than Buddy Guy.
What really got to me were the lyrics. ...it is “Blues” ..transformed, updated and urbanized.
Exquisite Modern and Traditional Blues and Neo-Soul by one of the most talented artists on the contemporary scene."
 

Biography:

http://boogiesmusicreporters.ning.com/forum/topics/the-billy-jones-story-the-times-and-travels-of-an-american

"...he has a voice that will enchant you. ...his songs are oozing with sexuality. ...at times dark. ...mysterious. ...downright funky, and always compelling. ...Billy Jones is certainly his own man. ...with a show-stopping style!"
Mz. SouthernSoul Blues Critic

...genuine road-hardened delta blues outlaws. ...blues/funk meets southern soul!

"...his vocals are a blend of blues intensity and style with urban soul. ...incredibly soulful and funky! ...it’s as if every song chastises me for never having heard of this man or his music before now. ...a combination of multiple genres while still maintaining a great late night, urban club feel. No matter if you want to call it soul, blues, R&B or whatever, Billy Jones can really put some emotion into his music. ...and as I say all the time, that is what music, and especially Blues & Southern Soul music, is all about. ...each of the songs guarantees I’ll be back for more."

                         -------------------------------------------
"This man has enormous talents. ..he has a quiet demeanor which disappears when his performance starts.
Then he transmogrifies into an animated music machine. ..a great musician and a gifted performer. ...and a nice guy."

"While I love traditional blues artists such as Son House, Howlin’ Wolf, etc., it was just so damned nice to listen to something that speaks eloquently in the tradition of those older artists, and yet manages to bring something new and funky to the table."
                           -----------------------------------------
"I like. Super cool. Great mix of styles. ...blues and funk, with a contemporary aftertaste. Good stuff. " 
review by: Louie Milestone
- Southern Soul Review
                           ------------------------------------------
WARNING:
...exclusive behind the scenes video of what happened at Alligator Records 
when they heard the new cd by The Billy Jones Band: 
   
                           -------------------------------------------
...biographical fact:
Billy Jones spent his teen and young adult years touring with, playing back-up guitar and being mentored by Calvin Leavy, Little Johnny Taylor and Larry 'Totsie' Davis. ...these are the original versions by the original masters that were written and recorded long before the cultural raiders and imitators came along.
All three of these great artists died penniless and unrecognized. ...and their life's works stolen to make fortunes for others.
Now ain't that the Blues?
...it is an honor to have been a musical soldier in their bands.
Calvin Leavy
YOUTUBE.COM
                          -----------------------------------------
...these are some of my favorite quotes:
 
"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure."
"We are the masters of our own destiny. We are the makers of our own fate."
"Without Courage ...we cannot practice any other virtue consistently."
“Know thy self and you will know the secrets of the universe.”
                          ------------------------------------------
 
True Greats...
Are Not Those Born With
Golden Spoons In Their Mouths
But Those...
Who Through Hard Work
Turn Their Own Wooden Spoons
Into Gold.
